Posted on 2019-03-04

DISC is a tool widely used in business environments for hiring, team building and improving communication.

Opposites Attract, Actually

Posted on 2019-02-11

Music artist Paula Abdul’s 1988 release, “Opposites Attract” (written by songwriter Oliver Lieber) couldn’t be more on-point in describing how two opposite personality styles really can attract. In the lyrics, it seems completely ridiculous that the two opposing personality styles of what seems to be an “I” and an “S” or “C” paired together shouldn’t repel each other (i.e. one liking to stay up late and party while the other prefers to be in bed early). However, there are many instances it couldn’t be more the case that opposite personalities actually do attract.

How to recognize DISC styles according to their goals

Posted on 2019-01-14

It has become somewhat of a tradition for people all around the world to make New Year’s resolutions or use the beginning of the year in order to motivate and challenge themselves for the months to come. Research shows that about 45% of the US population make at least one resolution, but sadly only 4% are still committed to their resolution by the end of the year. Setting goals is a positive approach to growth, so it is a good thing to set a lot of big and crazy goals, as well as some smaller and easier ones to accomplish. It’s really interesting to examine how people with different DISC types of personality arrange their list of goals and how to recognize their personality based on their aspirations.

4 ways to motivate athletes with DISC

Posted on 2018-12-20

Everyone is different, and we all deserve to be viewed as the unique human beings we are. People are motivated by different things, so it’s important for sport and fitness coaches to understand their athletes’ personalities in order to provide them with the most effective workouts at the right time. During any type of vigorous exercise, the mind of the athlete is constantly engaged with either a positive or negative thought. Planting the right, positive mindset could greatly affect an athlete’s performance; however, in order to accomplish this, the coach needs to conform to the athlete’s personality and way of thinking. Everyone is motivated by different things, which means what works for one might not really work for another.

Posted on 2018-10-31

Everyone is born completely fearless, and unfortunately, this changes not long after we take our first steps. Fears are neither good nor bad, and there are advantages and disadvantages of having them. Some fears we develop are necessary for survival, such as a fear of fire or thunderstorms, which are built-in, inherited warning signs every child learns very quickly. As we grow, our personality shapes and changes based on experiences, perception, and public expectations; people tend to develop behavioral-based fears.

Behavioral Strategies to Overcome Procrastination

Posted on 2018-09-26

Procrastination isn’t a disease, yet every student may suffer from it at one time or another. Those of us who are plagued by procrastination, myself included, know it has negative consequences, yet we still procrastinate willingly. The truth is, it affects everyone regardless of personality style. Why procrastinate? Because some tasks are out of our comfort zone, time consuming, vague, stressful or just plain, not fun. Who wouldn’t choose watching Instagram over writing a term paper? The more adverse the task, the more we procrastinate.

Posted on 2018-09-07

Studies show those individuals who set goals will achieve overall better results than those individuals who do not set goals. However, only 3% of the population set goals with measurable tasks on a list. I myself like to start my day with a list – anything from putting gas to my car, to work, to paying a bill.
