What is the Best DISC Personality Type?
It's tempting to believe that there is one personality type that is better than the rest. However, the truth is that none of the DISC personality types is better or worse than the other. The DISC personality theory does not have any good/bad categories, making it a behavioural inventory, not a test that one can pass or fail.
We can all exhibit behaviours from all four disc quadrants and disc profile types. However, some of these behaviours will come naturally to us with very little concentration or effort required. Whereas, other behaviours will require a lot more energy and focus.
Understanding your DISC personality type will help you recognise which jobs are naturally suited to your style and which roles may require more effort and concentration from you. Knowing your DISC personality will also help your manager to understand your ideal working environment and whether you need lots of instruction or to be left alone to work independently.
The DISC personality types each have their unique strengths and areas in which they naturally excel. They also have development areas, which are areas they need to focus on to achieve. For example, a D style person needs to make a conscious effort to focus on lots of information and details as this is not something that comes naturally to them. As a result, they will consume a large amount of energy adapting to this behaviour.
Your DISC Personality type does not limit you in any way. It merely helps you understand what behaviours will take energy and which come naturally to you.
