The DISC methodology has become a fundamental tool in some organizations, because it allows to evaluate employees to obtain results regarding the personality and/or characteristics of a candidate.

HPI International has HPI-DISC tests that are useful in recruitment, performance evaluation and team management processes; the use of this test should be understood as a support but not as a determinant, since there may be multiple circumstances that condition the performance of a collaborator.

What does the DISC test measure?

The DISC test reveals our innate characteristics, how we act in our environment. This is done through 4 basic behavioral patterns, being the initials of these the ones that make up the name of the methodology “DISC”.

  • The Dominant pattern (D)

The dominant pattern person will feel their environment as inhospitable, so they will be on alert for challenges and problems that may arise.

Individuals with this type of pattern tend to accept challenges, take authority, act in the face of adversity, etc.

  • The Influential pattern (I)

This type of pattern is characterized by feeling their environment as favorable, managing their environment in a timely manner and maintaining a good interpersonal relationship.

Likewise, these people are used to working in a team, networking, generating a pleasant environment, etc.

  • The Stable pattern (E)

This type of person feels their environment as safe and favorable, calmly contemplating the options they have.

In this pattern you will find behaviors such as patience, stabilizing their work environment, etc.

  • The Conscientious pattern (C)

Conscientious pattern people feel their environment as inhospitable, being on alert to achieve a certain level of stability in themselves.

They usually face situations from a conciliatory attitude, are methodical, analytical, among others.

According to the theoretical basis of this test, people possess to a lesser or greater extent all the behavioral patterns. The intensity with which some are presented over others and the behavioral axes derived from the 4 components, will allow us to know the “behavioral profile” of the individual. Likewise, these patterns are measured from the needs and habits of people, as well as from their way of perceiving the environment and themselves.

In HPI International you can find this tool so that you can use it in your work environment (HPI – DISC). Also, in case you need to specialize in the use of this tool, you can be trained through the DISC Analysis Certification program or the DISC program for sales.
