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 customize 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 canceled 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.

High Dominance, Influence and Compliance

Example Graph

Speed of response and a sense of urgency are the defining characteristics of this type. Their low Steadiness scores suggests that their approach will be rooted in a dynamic, impatient style. This is a relatively self-controlled and ambitious style, but they also possess effective social abilities that can be expected to come to the fore in informal, open situations.

While ambition and assertiveness are important elements of this style, the type of person to whom it refers will also have an awareness of the needs of others and a sense of order that make them far less impulsive and unpredictable than many similarly extrovert types. While they will wish to achieve success in their own right, they also understand that the needs of an organisation will from time to time require that they suppress their own ambitions for the good of the team.

Relating to Others

The ways in which this type relates to other people will tend to vary according to their social situation, depending on the relative formality of their surroundings. In more social, casual circumstances, they will project a friendly and animated style, being open and enthusiastic in general style.

If their situation is more formal or closely regulated, however, a more direct and determined side will develop, being both assertive and self-controlled, and showing far less of the sociable, gregarious side associated with favorable situations. It is in formal situations of this kind that the more ambitious and driving elements will come to the fore, and it is likely that the individual will also adopt a somewhat plain-speaking, blunt aspect.

Common Abilities

From the above, it will be clear that an individual of this kind will display different abilities in different situations; they can be charming and enthusiastic, or direct and forthright, depending on their particular circumstances. From a manager's perspective, it will clearly be productive to adapt such a person's working environment, so far as is possible, to bring out the particular style that is most appropriate.

Motivating Factors

Profiles with three high factors, such as this, have complex sets of motivating factors that may sometimes conflict with one another. In this case, motivation stems from the achievement of personal ambition, the acceptance and approval of other people, and certainty of their position. Where these are incompatible, as for example if the fulfillment of a goal requires a risk to be taken, the relative values of the three factors will give some indication of the person's likely course of action.

Sub-traits

The Sub-traits of this type are Self-motivation, Enthusiasm and Sensitivity.

Style Card

DISC profiles with three high factors are not directly comparable with Style Card types.
