Extended DISC measures emotions
Extended DISC measures the unconscious behavior and compares it with the conscious adjusted behavioural style, allowing the measurement of emotions. It goes way beyond regular DISC in this regard. It also enables the report to define the influence of the present environment on the respondent’s motivation as far as certain needs are concerned. This is vital information both for the individual and the organization.
More behavioural styles than in any other instrument
Extended DISC assumes that an individual has reaction modes for all behavior styles, of which he or she prefers some more than others. Recognizing some 160 different styles, Extended DISC allows an individual to be more flexible and dynamic (adapting) in his or her behavior.
Extended DISC is difficult to cheat
Extended DISC is extremely difficult to cheat. DISC programs can (and often are) answered by the respondent in the way they believe their potential employer would like them to answer. We know when someone has tried to beat the system.
More stable results than with any other instrument
Profile II illustrates a person’s natural response to an external stimulus. It is the behavioural style that takes the least energy and effort, requires the least amount of concentration and is usually the most pleasant to the individual.
Measures the individual both on unconscious AND conscious levels
Profile I illustrates how the person feels they want/need to adjust their behavior to cope with the requirements of the present environment.
Extended DISC not only assesses, but also helps the individual
This instrument can tell whether there is a key feeling of uncertainty or lack of clarity, whether the person feels insecure or whether a person is frustrated.
