The DISC personality assessment are based off of Marston’s theory of personality. This theory determined that there are four primary categories, or quadrants, of personality. Every person possess some amount of each trait, but will have certain traits, or categories, that are prevalent. Every individual is unique, and each person’s combination of the four traits will be unique to them.
