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.

The DISC Profile Motivation Spectrum

Exploring the key motivational factors in a personality

The Motivation Spectrum is a specialised report focused on helping you to understand and develop a candidate's core motivations. Based on their DISC results, it looks in detail at the factors that help to energise and enthuse an individual, as well as considering how other factors can lead to demotivation.

The Motivation Spectrum will even investigate a candidate's attitude in their current role, and look at features that may be affecting their motivation in that role in a positive or a negative way.

The Motivation Spectrum works by putting together an analysis of eight interrelated motivating factors and reporting in depth on each of these, and the ways they are relevant to any individual candidate. These motivational factors are derived directly from a candidate's DISC scores, so a Motivation Spectrum is available for any personality profile.

Discus Motivation Spectrum: In-depth Analysis

In-depth Analysis

The Motivation Spectrum report goes on to look at each of the eight motivation factors in detail.

The Eight Factors of the Motivation Spectrum


Demonstrating success and effectiveness in achieving goals


Being seen as a positive and popular social influence


Operating in a relatively stable and predictable situation


Having clear knowledge of a situation, the underlying facts and the expectations of others


Having achievements recognised and respected by other people


Being accepted and respected as part of a working or social group


Taking time to understand and prepare for developments and challenges


Ensuring that events and systems work according to specific requirements

Any of the eight motivation factors might be a strong motivator - or a demotivator - depending on a person's unique personality and their current role. The Motivation Spectrum report will help you to discover how they are likely to come into play in different situations, and how you can use them to help build motivation based on an individual personality style.

Inside a Motivation Spectrum Report

  • Each of the eight motivation factors is clearly explained in the Motivation Spectrum report, along with the ways it reflects an individual's motivation.
  • Motivation is highly dependent on the demands of a person's current role, and that perception is explored in the report.
  • Motivation notes summarise the optimum ways to help motivate a candidate presented in a clear and succinct way.
  • The report also looks at demotivating factors, approaches to avoid when trying to build an individual's personal motivation.
