Your Primary Personality

Your Personal DISCernment Inventory™ report will show you which of the four major personality types best represents you: D, I, S or C. But that's only the beginning.

Your report will also clarify how to identify and relate to each of the four types in others. Keep reading to learn more.

Observable Traits

Your report will provide a list of the observable traits others most often see when interacting with you. Some of these may be a surprise to you, but you can be sure, your co-workers or significant others may not be surprised at all.

The 28 Representative Patterns

To some degree, every personality contains all four styles, even though some elements are high and others low. The particular ways in which the four factors combine and influence one another form 28 'representative' behavioral styles. This style reflects most clearly how others see you.

Each Representative Pattern identifies the following aspects:

  • Observable Traits
  • Internal Motivators
  • Potential for Growth
  • Ideal Work Setting

Your report will teach you which of the 28 Representative Patterns best fits you, and provide details about the other 27 to help you better understand them.

How People (and You) See You

Your report won't just tell you the basics of your personality. It provides three graphs showing you your Projected, Private, and Public Concepts — allowing you to see your personality from three unique perspectives.

The Projected Concept

The Projected Concept reflects how you think others want you to behave or how you want them to see you. This is the role people assume in order to achieve success.

The Private Concept

This is your natural behavior, who you are deep down. This behavior is a product of heredity and early environment.

The Public Concept

The third graph represents the net effect of the Private and Projected Concepts, and reflects most clearly how others really see you.

Over 150 Strengths and Weaknesses

Each report contains over 150 possible strengths and weaknesses most associated with each personality, and which of these most likely apply specifically to you.
