Everything DiSC is still DiSC

If you enjoy the classic model and are worried about switching, it’s important to note that both models use the same DiSC language.

Your knowledge of DiSC will easily migrate into the Everything DiSC model. Furthermore, you will have a few new reports to help your participants understand themselves and others better in specific settings (i.e. Management, Sales, Conflict).

What is Difference Between Everything DiSC and DiSC Classic?

The largest changes between the two models is how a person’s DiSC style is represented, and how a person’s style is assessed.

However, at it’s core, both versions of DiSC measures a person based on two dimensions:

  • Is a person more Skeptical (questioning or cynical) or Accepting (trusting or receptive)
  • Is a person Active (Outspoke or assertive) or Thoughtful (internal or reflective)

How is a person's DiSC Style is determined?

In the DiSC Classic Model, anyone who takes the assessment is asked the same 28-sets of adjectives. This method of testing is called Forced Choice testing. A respondent is forced to choose one adjective that describes them over the other. When Forced Choice testing was developed, it was used to prevent social desirability. 

Today this method of testing is still a reliable and valid way to determine a person’s DiSC style. However, forced choice testing doesn’t fully capture the nuances that a person might have within their own behavioral identity.

On the other hand, Everything DiSC approaches a person’s DiSC style by asking someone to rate on a 5-point scale how much an adjective describes them. In a forced choice set of questioning, a person would have to choose if they are ‘reserved’ or ‘direct’. Now a person can rate how much they feel the adjective ‘reserved’ describes themselves. 

Furthermore, Everything DiSC utilizes an Computerized Adaptive Testing to determine how many questions should be asked to a person. Everything DiSC has 74-base questions that it can use to find out a person’s DiSC Style. In a forced-choice setting, a person would have to answer all of these questions. With adaptive testing, if a person is answering directly and their DiSC style is easily determined, they might only have to answer a fraction of these questions. If a person’s behavior is more nuanced, they might have at answer more.

Through this form of testing, Everything DiSC is 32% more accurate than DiSC Classic.

Understanding DiSC on the Circle Graph

While it might seem like a large leap, switching from a line-graph based DiSC style to the Circular-Graph is fairly straight forward.

No longer will you need to look at the highest points on a line-graph to determine a person’s primary or secondary style. With Everything DiSC, you simply find where a person’s dot is placed and look at which quadrant it is in. In DiSC Classic, a person’s DiSC style was based on 4 scales (D, I, S, C). Everything DiSC tests a person on 8 scales (D, Di/iD, I, iS/Si, S, SC/CS, C, CD/DC). Furthermore, a person can have an additional priority added to their style. If you have an S style, you could also have the priority of ‘Action’.

These eight scales and a person’s ‘priorities’ replace the classic patterns. With Everything DiSC, you immediately read a full description of your style with the nuances that are provided by your priorities. We have found that participants have more insights into their behaviors when using Everything DiSC versus DiSC Classic.
