DISC scores explained

Two DISC scores come out of the DISC analysis. One representing your basic style and one representing your response style. The basic style is the behaviour you show unconsciously, without thinking about it. You do this in a safe environment where you can be 100% yourself and where you are relaxed, but also in stressful situations. Under stress, your true nature emerges and corresponds to your basic behaviour. Your response behaviour is the behaviour you show in your work environment, which you think is desirable. We call this adapted, conscious behavioural style the response style.

High and low DISC scores

Both basic and response styles are measured using a questionnaire. From this comes a score from 1 to 100. The midline is at 50. In the behaviour graphs, this limit is represented by a thicker horizontal line. All behavioural styles with a score above 50, are perceptible to others.

Low scores also count and partly determine your behaviour. Only a low score on a behavioural style involves different behavioural characteristics than the high score. Many people disregard the scores below 50% and, in our view, that is incorrect. After all, it is a combination of the behavioural styles that reflect your preferred behaviour, in which the low scores also play a role. But what do these scores really mean? What does a high red and a low green DISC score tell you? We will explain it to you below.

Red DISC score

The red behavioural style (Dominant) reflects how you deal with problems and challenges.

You like a challenge! You keep going until you reach your goal. Does it not work out as planned? Then you quickly come up with a new creative idea that works!

Some characteristics:
▪ Striving
▪ Determined
▪ Self-starter

Yellow DISC score

The yellow behavioural style (Influence) reflects how you influence and convince others of your ideas and views.

Low score <50

You present your ideas more factually without frills or frills. You are a little less quick to confide in others are sometimes a little sceptical.

Blue DISC score

The blue behavioural style (Conformism) reflects how you deal with prescribed rules and procedures.

Some characteristics:
▪ Thorough
▪ Stubborn
▪ Nonchalant

High score >50

You care about following rules and procedures at all times. They are there for a reason right? This is the only way you can deliver the best results.

Understanding behavioural styles can help with team development. You become aware of the behaviour you show and how you come across to others. After all, it starts with awareness and self-insight. You can also use the DISC team profile, for example, to look at the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Are you curious about your DISC score or that of your colleagues?
