In September, I was required to attend a course for determining my personality style. I’ve previously blogged on this topic before and determined that, of the four temperaments, I was melancholy sanguine. Well, the DiSC assessment is a bit different (although not by much). DiSC stands for: Dominance, influence, Conscientious, Steadiness. Responses can vary based on the environment. For example, I am an I at work (29) but not too far off from an S (28). This would probably change for my personal/home life. I found myself identifying with the steadiness category much more than the influence category, but I was borderline for each. Here’s an overview of the different DiSC styles. Click on the image to enlarge it or click here to download the PDF.
PersonalityStyle.com has a free DiSC assessment, but I’m sure it’s one of those assessments that won’t give you the results unless you give the site your email. I hope you will instead try to find your personality according to the overview above and tell me who you think you are.
Update as of 11/8/11: It appears the link to the original personality test I took is no longer valid. A quick temperament test is found at writing.com if you scroll past the four temperament descriptions. I have provided the link to it here for your convenience: http://www.writing.com/main/quiz/item_id/1145443-Temperament-Test. Keep in mind: links don’t remain active forever so enjoy the link for however long it lasts. View my latest post on the DiSC assessment personality test here.
So I took this personality test and it told me I was Melancholy (45%) Sanguine (23%). I found the strengths and weaknesses of the Melancholy personality (much more so than Sanguine) describe me rather accurately. I starred the things that I thought described me (I’m guessing on the parent part).
