Hi, my name is Crystal, and I love taking personality tests. From legitimate tests like Myers-Briggs (I’m an INFJ if you were curious) to the goofy ones you find online or in magazines, I love them all. When I found out my husband and I to take them as part of our pre-marital counseling, I was thrilled. When a potential job asked me to take one as part of the hiring process, I couldn’t wait to get started.
But then I read the results, and my mind starts to wonder…is this really me? Is this all there is to “Crystal,” all neat and tidy and packaged into a few pages of analysis? My DISC assessment is the one I struggled most with when it came to these thoughts recently, and here’s why: I’m not the most flattering “letter.”
Decisive – your preference for problem solving and getting results
Interactive – your preference for interacting with others and showing emotion
Stability – your preference for pacing, persistence and steadiness
Cautious – your preference for procedures,standards and protocols
Yep…that spells DISC. You know. In case you wondered why it was called a DISC assessment. You’re welcome.
