DISC Temperament Assessment
Offering Virtual Appointments
DISC Temperament Assessment helps you understand the temperament you are born with, and why you do the things you do. DISC Temperament Profile is a temperament assessment tool; temperament is often confused with personality, personality is the total of what a person is, whereas temperament is but one part, although a very important part. Temperament is what we are born with.
The DISC Assessment will give you language to better understand yourself and those you interact with at home and at work, improving communication in all relationships to reduce conflict. By working with Stephanie on your assessment, she will help you interpret your results and provide you with a detailed understanding.

Temperament is Not the Same as Character
Temperament has nothing to do with a person’s character or his level of maturity. It is what a person is apart from problems. Temperament is defined as a cluster of inborn traits that causes you, in part, to do what you do.
Temperament is Not a Type
A distinction needs to be made between a type and a trait. Types are broad categories, such as extrovert or introvert. Traits are more narrow and restrict characteristics of behavior, such as being direct, sociable, patient or analytical.
The temperament model does not embrace the type approach to behavior. Rather, the temperament model recognizes that people are born with a cluster of traits. Traits allow for different degrees of expression or development by an individual. Gordon Allport says, “A man can be said to have a trait; but he cannot be said to have a type, rather he fits a type.”
