    The DISC Personality System is the universal language of behavior. Research has shown that behavioral characteristics can be grouped together in four major divisions called personality styles. People with similar personality profiles styles tend to exhibit specific behavioral characteristics common to that profile. All people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity. The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the letters:

They live on the edge, challenging boundaries and restrictions, pitting themselves for better or for worse in a thrilling game against their own mortality. No risk, no reward, they say.

    Ok, I've been on hiatus for awhile, been reading a lot, and been doing some soul searching. I've been dissecting my past and present actions, and have finally settled on a type that I am fairly certain about (for the time being anyway).

    After reading Lenore Thompson’s book Personality Type: An Owner’s Manual, I discovered that she had a different view of the function orderings than what I have seen in other theories. Rather than ordering the functions as Dominant, Auxiliary, Tertiary, Inferior, then shadow functions, she orders them as Dominant, Auxiliary, right (or left) brain alternatives, left (or right) brain double-agents, Tertiary, Inferior. See the orderings ...
