A DiSC Question - I'm Stumped!!

Last week I had a great question about the DiSC Profile, specifically the word version. Here is the DiSC question I received:

When looking at the DiSC report on the page with the graph that shows the tally box scoring, what does the column “N” mean? Here is an example of what I am asking to learn more about:

DiSC Tally BoxMost 12 6 4 5 1
Least 2 5 12 9 0
Different 10 1 -8 -4

This DiSC question stumped me! I had never heard it before in my 5 ½ years with Resources Unlimited! After some research and a conversation with the publisher, I had an answer. I decided that it is definitely one to be shared. Here is the response I sent:

In all psychological assessments, the null value is used to “level the playing field” for all of the scales. The values that are null (N) do not get measured by any of the scales. An example of this could be the word “happy.” Let’s say that happy would be an “i” word. Well, just because “unhappy” is the opposite, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a characteristic of a high “C.” In other words, the word might fit in a “most” category, but not in a “least.” They recommended that you review the research report below. Page 13 was specifically noted…


Has anyone else ever received this DiSC question? If so, how did you respond?
