DISC Profiling focuses on behavior which is how someone prefers to act and what they do, rather than personality traits. Behavior is flexible, personality is not. We never ask an athlete to change their personality, but coaches constantly ask athletes to adjust their technique or what they do.

At its core, DISC Profiling is based on a simple four-quadrant model. This is critical in sport as it allows coaches, athletes and sports professionals to quickly understand, remember and use. Yet, you can also delve much deeper into its theory and application to truly master this area of expertise, which is what the Athlete Assessments’ DISC Profiles specifically do. (Personality tests are psychometric assessments. They are more complex and require extensive training to administer and work with. Also, most are only developed for business, not sport.)
