IV. DISC Profile Shapes

An important advantage of the DISC system over other profiling techniques is that it produces recognizable profile 'shapes' to describe different styles. In this section, we look at the most common profile shapes, and discuss the styles of behavior associated with each.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of possible DISC profiles, and so of course there's no simple way to describe all the possible graph shapes in detail. This section looks at the most important formations, and provides some general notes about each.

Choose a profile to interpret from the contents listed below, or select high factors on the interactive profile to jump straight to an interpretation.

High Factors

DISC profile to interpret

To find the section that applies to a particular profile, look for factors over 65% (this is usually marked by a dotted line on a DISC graph). These are the high factors of the profile. Select the section that corresponds to these high factors.

Profiles with One High Factor

Profiles with Two High Factors

Profiles with Three High Factors

Special Situations

A number of profile shapes are considered special situations, with their own specific meanings. This section covers these special situations, including Compressed and Extended Profiles, and graphs showing Overshift and Undershift.
