Friends TV Characters Explained by DISC Personality Styles

Posted on 2013-08-13

When you watch a television show for an extended period of time, it's easy to connect with the characters and even feel like you see the world through their eyes. Connecting with one character more than another could be more than a mere preference though. It could be because you connect with them on an innate level, understanding what they think or feel because you share their personality style.

Embracing the Introvert: DISC Styles S and C

Posted on 2013-08-08

Are you an introvert? When looking at a DISC profile, both S and C personality styles fall to the more “introverted” side of the DISC spectrum, while D and I personality styles are considered to be more classically “extroverted.” One of the problems, though, with the binary categorization of introvert vs. extrovert is that somewhere it has crept into our cultural subconscious that introverts are inferior to the more extroverted personality styles. I’m sure you’ve heard this before: Introverts are cripplingly shy, socially awkward and generally unsuitable for sales or management positions, while extroverts are better companions and leaders, outgoing, charming, assertive and animated. This, however, is untrue! When looking at a DISC profile, there isn’t one “best” personality style. All of the personality styles have their strengths and struggles. Those that would classify introverts as somehow lesser than extroverts are doing a disservice to the many wonderful (and enviable) traits inherent to the introvert.

Can You Determine Personality Type Without Using a DISC Report?

Posted on 2013-07-23

A DISC report is a great way to understand the motivations, stressors, and conversational style of everyone you encounter. It’s a perfect method for measuring compatibility and helps you anticipate any potential stumbling blocks you might have when communicating with others. That said, you’re bound to run into situations where it would be incredibly helpful to know the DISC style of a person you’re interacting with, but it’s not possible to administer a full DISC test. (“Why, yes… I’d love to go on another date with you. Would you mind first taking this quick personality test?”)

DISC Analysis and Behavioral Selling: Know Your Audience, Increase Your Sales

Posted on 2013-07-19

Last week I was working from home when the doorbell rang. Since I live in a fairly off-the-beaten-path, suburban neighborhood, imagine my surprise when I opened the door to a salesman, eager to sell me a bottle of floor cleaner. Now I’m not a big fan of unsolicited sales calls. As a high "C," I don’t like awkward chit-chat with strangers, and I never make a purchase without researching it first. Like, never. Not even floor cleaner. Not even when it’s a ten-year-old looking to sell me coupon books so his baseball team can buy new uniforms. I’m always a real grump when I open the door to someone selling something. A million questions always enter my mind: Why are you here? How do I know I can trust what you’re selling? Is it a good deal? And if I buy something from you, will you come back again to bug me in the future?

Posted on 2013-07-03

Summertime is the biggest time of the year for weddings. When the calendar rolls around to June, the flowers have bloomed, the grass is green, and eager brides and grooms are busy making plans for the future.

By looking at the four DISC personality types, it’s easy to see that the way a person plans and envisions their wedding says a lot about who they are.
