Why do I not agree with some of the statements made in my Personal Analysis report?
Humans are very complex beings. No assessment can capture all of the different aspects of our human entity.
As a result, the answer to this question has four main points:
Extended DISC® Personal Analysis measures only behavioral style. There are many other facets to an individual.
- The individual may have already identified a development area and has taken a conscious effort to improve.
- An individual has a strong bias toward a certain style and believes that his/her style is different from the “true” style.
- Assessment results are not 100% accurate – nor is the target of the analysis 100% stable. Typically, the underlying reasons relate to some distractions that occur when a person completed the questionnaire or the desire to influence/skew the results. Also, if the questionnaire was filled out under strong emotional distraction, the tool may have responded to that emotional status to the extent that the actual behavioral result became difficult to interpret. Extended DISC® has many mechanisms to uncover and to prevent this from taking place. However, it is possible that under the above-mentioned situations the results may not completely reflect the individual’s behavioral style.
- One should always assume that an individual could best assess his/her own style. Therefore, never try to convince a participant the report is “right”. That is not the purpose of Extended DISC®. The objective is to improve performance.
