Managing your personality profile administration, handling invitations across the Internet and compiling DISC reports automatically
Discus has been constantly developed and improved over the last 26 years.
The service itself is free to use; you only pay for the profiles you create using the system. As part of your registration, you'll be provided with a set of credits so you can start creating profiles right away. Extra features like Job Matching, Relationship Assessment and Team Building are all available for unlimited use at no extra charge.
You can find full details of our introductory packages, including package prices, on our Purchase page.
At the simplest level, one credit is the price of a Classic profile report; that is, for one credit you can create a comprehensive overview report for any DISC profile. Reports with different content are charged at different credit rates, so the more detailed Enhanced report costs two credits, while the basic Outline report costs just three-quarters of a credit. You can upgrade between report levels at any time.
You can prepurchase credits ahead of time to ensure that you're always set up ready to create profiles, and there are significant discounts available for volume credit purchases.
No. Once you purchase credits, they remain on your account until you use them, with no expiry limit.
A standard DISC assessment contains twenty-four multiple-choice questions. Questions are typically presented to candidates using an interactive questionnaire, which can be used to complete profiles across the Web. We also provide the option to print an unlimited supply of paper questionnaires.
Completion time can vary according to the particular type of questionnaire used and according to the individual candidate. In general, however, a questionnaire will take about ten minutes for a candidate to complete.
A full report on the validity and reliability of our psychometric assessment is available in the Roodt Report. See our Reliability and Validity section for full information.
If you just want to see your own DISC personality assessment, you can do that without signing up for the full package. We can provide a single profile questionnaire directly through this site, but note that this is designed for you to answer about yourself and create your own personal report. We don't recommend this service for creating profiles of other people; in that case, registering for the full service is the best course of action.
Our personality test is based on DISC theory, one of the best established commercial profile systems in use today. The core personality profile measures four fundamental factors: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance (from the initials of which we get 'DISC'). Extrapolating out from these measurements we can derive specific interpretations covering a whole range of behavioural styles and their reactions to different conditions.
If you'd like to find out more about DISC, you'll find a useful introduction on our What is DISC? page.
Just take a few minutes to run through our simple registration process, and you'll be ready to get started right away. You can choose from a range of packages with different options, from the basic Core package up to the Ultimate package that includes extra features such as personalised branding and a free Certification Course.
Signing up for Discus just takes a few minutes, and gives you a world of personality profiling at your fingertips.
