How do I get started with Discus?

Getting started with Discus is easy. You'll just need to take a few minutes to sign up for an account, and then you'll be ready to start creating profiles right away.

Can I send questionnaires to my candidates online?

Discus provides an entire suite of features to make this process easy and automatic. At the simplest level, you can simply enter a person's e-mail address, and Discus will send them an invitation and then display and manage the questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is complete, a report will immediately be compiled and added to your accounts.

Discus also provides lots of options for your to customise this process to meet your exact requirements. For example, you can arrange to be automatically notified and sent a copy of the report as soon as it is available.

Can a person completing a questionnaire read their own report?

This is a decision you can make as you set up an invitation. There's no requirement to share the report, but you have the option of doing so if you wish.

Discus can also provide an intermediate solution through the 'Feedback' report, which is an alternative version of the report specifically designed for this purpose, providing a readable and accessible summary of the results.

Do I have access to all my profile reports?

Every DISC profile produced on your account is held in your own secure Discus database. You can access, review and manage those reports at any time. Discus even provides extra features to assess the results in combination, such as comparing candidates against the needs of a role, or assessing how individuals would work together in a team.

How can I recover a lost or forgotten Discus password?

It's easy to reset your Discus access details. You can start the process from the Discus sign-in page, or by following the link below. Discus will handle resetting your access through your registered e-mail address.

Is training available?

We offer a comprehensive online video training course introducing the DISC system and its workings. The course is free if you sign up for an account with fifty credits or more.

Discus itself offers an interactive guide to get your started, and extensive help resources throughout the system.

I received a test invitation, but I'm not able to use it.

There can be various reasons for this. The invitation code might already have been used, or it might simply have expired, or been cancelled by the user who originally set up the invitation.

Your best course of action in a situation like this is to get in touch with your invitation provider and ask them to set up another invitation for you.

I completed an invited questionnaire, but I didn't receive a copy of my report.

When a Discus user sends out an invitation, they can choose whether to give you access to your report or not, so it may simply be that this option isn't active.

If you think you should have received a report, your best course of action is to contact the person who sent you your invitation; they will have the option of sending you a copy.

Can I try Discus for free?

Sorry, we aren't able to offer free trial profiles, but if you want to try the service, remember that you can set up a Discus account with just a single credit.

If you want to see what Discus can produce, take a look at our extensive library of sample reports.

High Dominance Only

Example Graph

The High-D profile is often described as the 'Autocrat', and for good reason. Dominance is the factor of control and assertiveness, and with no other high factors in the profile to balance this, the pure High-D can be remarkably domineering, and even overbearing at times. This type of person has a very high need to achieve, and because of this they are often ambitious and competitive, striving aggressively to achieve their goals. They are dynamic and adaptable, and show a decisiveness and a capacity for direct leadership.

Relating to Others

The emphasis that this type of person places on achievement and success significantly affects their relations with other people. In extreme cases, a High-D can come to treat other people simply as a means to an end, or a way of achieving their personal goals. Dominance is not an emotional factor, and individuals with this type of profile will tend not to place great importance on feelings, either their own or others'. The competitive side of Dominance can lead this type of person to see challenges and opposition everywhere, and others sometimes find it difficult to break through this naturally suspicious, sceptical shell.

Common Abilities

We have already seen that the Dominant individual has qualities of command and leadership. It should be noted, however, that these abilities are based on their direct, demanding nature, and are more suited to structured, formal situations than those where close ties are required.

The High-D is a competent and confident decision-maker, able to reach a conclusion quickly from minimal information and act accordingly. They are well suited to situations that others would find unbearably stressful, as their desire for challenge and their enjoyment of success against the odds makes them unusually proficient in dealing with such situations.

Motivating Factors

Highly Dominant individuals of this kind like to feel that they are in control, and seek opportunities to reinforce and emphasise their personal power. They measure their progress in life by their achievements and successes, and need to maintain a sense of personal momentum.

Being impatient and forthright, they intensely dislike situations that they are unable to directly resolve for themselves - dependence on other people is anathema to this type. They find these kinds of situation extremely frustrating, and can be driven to wild, impulsive actions in an attempt to relieve the pressure.

Sub-traits

The Sub-traits of a highly Dominant type are Efficiency, Self-motivation and Independence.

Style Card

High-D's are Assertive and Controlled. They relate directly to the Style Card segment of the Driver.
