Interpreting Your DISC Style(s) Overview The AMA DISC Survey assesses your on-the-job behaviors in terms of four different styles: Directing Influencing Supportive Contemplative The first step in interpreting and understanding your DISC style is to view Your DISC Scores and Profile and review your results along all four styles. The DISC Profile presents your survey scores plotted against those of others, graphically portrays the relative strength of your tendencies along all four styles, and shows the underlying orientations (i.e., toward tasks versus people and acceptance versus change ) which drive your personal styles.

The work-related behavior of most people is depicted best by considering one or more other styles in addition to their most descriptive styles. Thus, this section provides you with information on the other DISC styles which, as shown on your profile, might complement, work together with, or possibly compete with your dominant style.
