Understanding DISC and the Blind Spot Assessment

Welcome! If you're exploring what DISC is and how the Blind Spot Assessment enhances this powerful framework, you've come to the right place. DISC is a behavioral assessment tool grounded in the theory developed by psychologist William Moulton Marston in the 1920s. It identifies four primary personality traits: Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C). These traits are pivotal in understanding how we behave in various situations, including our professional life, personal relationships, and team dynamics.

Introducing the Blind Spot Assessment

The Blind Spot Assessment builds on the traditional DISC framework by not only measuring the four primary personality styles but also recognizing four blended styles, offering a more nuanced understanding of personality. This assessment simplifies the complexity of human behavior into eight distinct styles, each with a descriptive name that encapsulates its essence. These are:

  • Competitor (D): Focused on results and assertiveness.
  • Energizer (DI/ID): Dynamic and persuasive.
  • Motivator (I): Inspirational and communicative.
  • Connector (IS/SI): Empathetic and cooperative.
  • Peacemaker (S): Dependable and thoughtful.
  • Stabilizer (SC/CS): Methodical and analytical.
  • Analyzer (C): Detail-oriented and precise.
  • Controller (CD/DC): Strategic and challenging.

 This assessment simplifies the language and delivers a more concise report compared to traditional DISC reports, making it easier to understand and apply the insights.

History of DISC and the Evolution to the Blind Spot Assessment™


The Beginnings of DISC

The story of the DISC assessment begins with William Moulton Marston, a Harvard psychologist, who introduced the world to the DISC theory in 1928. His pioneering concept, detailed in "Emotions of Normal People," categorized human behavior into four personality traits: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance. Although Marston laid the theoretical groundwork, he did not create an assessment tool.

From Theory to Practical Application

In the mid-20th century, industrial psychologist Walter Vernon Clarke developed the first DISC assessment tool, the Activity Vector Analysis. This development was a significant leap from theory to practical application. The DISC assessment gained further traction in the 1970s under Dr. John Geier at the University of Minnesota, who created the Personal Profile System, widely used in corporate and personal development.

DISC in the Modern World

The DISC assessment has been a staple in understanding behavioral styles and personality profiles in various settings, including team building, leadership development, and communication training.

The Advent of the Blind Spot Assessment

In 2016, Human Behavior Consultant Kevin McCarthy, CSP, recognized the need to simplify and expedite the DISC assessment process. He observed that despite DISC's popularity, its complexity often hindered people from integrating the insights into their leadership or work life. McCarthy envisioned a more streamlined, user-friendly, and accurate assessment. Thus, the Blind Spot Assessment was born.

The Impact of the Blind Spot Assessment

Since its debut, the Blind Spot Assessment has had a remarkable impact. Tens of thousands of individuals and organizational leaders have embraced this tool for personal insights and in corporate training and team-building initiatives. The assessment's appeal has crossed continents, with coaches and trainers in North America, Germany, and Australia incorporating it into their practices.

The Blind Spot Assessment stands as a testament to the evolving landscape of human behavior assessment. It builds on the rich legacy of the DISC theory while making significant strides in accessibility, speed, and practicality. This tool not only marks a new chapter in the history of behavioral assessment but also continues to shape the future of personal and professional development worldwide.
