Why Do You Take Personality Tests?

NBC has a fluff piece on personality testing. It's a surprisingly respectable taxonomy, actually, despite the overall clickbait vibe. A piece of brain candy at the end of the day.

DiSC Workplace Online Specialization

The brand-new DiSC Workplace Online Specialization is here!

The Online Specialization program is DiSC certification with a twist: a hybrid classroom/online certification. The course is designed for DiSC practitioners who want the camaraderie of live, classroom training plus the convenience and flexibility of online learning.

The course is taught as a single cohort of 20 participants. The cohort meets four times in an online classroom for weekly, 90-minute classes. These classes are live, instructor-led workshops with small-group breakout sessions, so attendance is mandatory. The instructor will assign individual pre-work and post-work for each workshop, which the participant completes at his/her convenience. The total time commitment is 12-20 hours over the course of four weeks.

Registration includes a wealth of DiSC training materials: a DiSC Workplace facilitation kit, an EPIC account, and DiSC Workplace profile.

 The inaugural Workplace Specialization course begins on September 8. To register, or for course dates and other information, see our DiSC Online Specialization page.

Updated DiSC Sales profile

Great news - the updated DiSC Sales profile is here! The new version has been updated with adaptive testing, an advanced scoring algorithm that is more robust and precise than ever.

Gone is the fixed, 79-question Sales profile. Instead, the profile now asks a variable number of questions, which depend on the respondent's previous answers. In other words, the profile learns from the initial responses and adapts itself accordingly.

Why is this useful? Because it enables the Sales profile to hone in on areas of ambiguity or inconsistency and more thoroughly explore a particular aspect of the respondent's behavior. This leads to more accurate results. Alternatively, if a respondent demonstrates little ambiguity or inconsistency, the profile needs fewer questions to compile the results - which saves time for the respondent. Either way, it's a better outcome!

You'll notice that updated profile includes slightly different graphics and images, and we recommend that you update your DiSC Sales facilitation kit to reflect the new version of the assessment. To update your kit, just give us a call at 515.278.1292 and we'll take care of it. The update is free through July 30; afterwards, it costs $49.

For more information about adaptive testing, feel free to read our adaptive testing research report.
