Perception: Understanding Human Connectivity through the DISC Behavioral Model

All of us are interested in finding out more about ourselves and others. Our natural curiosity of the world applies to our role in it and how we respond to it. DISC is a behavioral model developed by Dr. William Marston in the 1920s intended to identify and categorize (even predict) how we respond to our environment and each other. The strength of the model rests not only in its ability to measure and categorize observable behaviors but also in its capacity to assist each of us exercise more flexibility with a variety of people and situations. A key component of the book is the DISC 17© Self-Assessment, a simple 24-question instrument you can complete in a matter of minutes. The results of your assessment are easily determined, and narratives corresponding to your specific results are provided with fascinating and fun insights into how you perceive your environment and your role in it. Perception is an entertaining yet profound exploration into human connectivity leading to reduced tension and conflict, improved communications, and expanded influence and leadership.
