Advantages of TTISI DISC Assessment

Our DISC assessment is not like others. Below we have listed some of the key points of difference to consider about the TTI Success Insights DISC profile before making your decision on an assessment provider. We would encourage you to ask any other assessment provider you speak with if they can provide the same offering.

TTI Wrote the Book on DISC

The Universal Language DISC Reference Guide is the only comprehensive manual on DISC in the world. It contains over 280 pages of useful information on behavioural styles, presented in a visually engaging, full colour, easy-to-read layout with plenty of data and supporting research.

The First Online DISC Assessment

We were the first company in the world to computerise the DISC assessment.

User-Friendly, Practical & Easy to Debrief

Our profiles do not contain pages of technical mumbo jumbo — they are designed for time-conscious business people with practical workplace goals in mind. This means that you don't have to be a Ph.D. in Psychology to understand the profiles and create value for your participants. You will benefit from a robust assessment, coupled with simple, easy to understand layout and wording, with visually appealing design.

Personalised Feedback

Unlike many assessment providers, the TTI Success Insights profiles do not use generic feedback for their profiles. Their sophisticated algorithms within the IDS system allow for personalised wording based on an individual’s responses. This ultimately means that participants have better buy-in as they see their name throughout the profile.

Customisable Profiles

The Internet Delivery System (IDS) gives you the ability to customise profiles by turning pages on and off, and even reordering pages. This means you can design the profile around your process, instead of designing your process around the profile.

Multiple Languages

The TTI Success Insights Suite is available in over 25 languages, with more being added every year. This means that a participant is able to answer the questionnaire in their native language and the profile can be produced in a completely different language. For example, if you're working with a Chinese participant, they can take the questionnaire in Chinese, but you can have the results delivered in English.

Neuroscience Validation

Our DISC assessment is totally unique in the market because we apply the latest neuroscience and EEG brain imaging technology to update our questionnaire.

External Validation

Our DISC assessment is validated by an object, third-party, which is uncommon in the assessment industry. Ask your supplier if they conduct their validation studies internally or externally.

R4 Questionnaire

Another aspect that is unique about our questionnaire is that we ask participants to rank all four sets of 24 questions (R4), which produces higher validity than typical DISC questionnaires that use a 2-set approach.

Australian/New Zealand Norm

Our DISC questionnaire is designed with local data samples from the Australian & New Zealand populations.

DISC Technical Report

A short PDF with history and validity information that is designed for you to be able give to your clients and introduction to DISC and help them understand how the tool works without needing a Ph.D. in Psychology.

Fast — Only 7-10 Minutes

The questionnaire is delivered online and only takes 7-10 minutes to complete.

Multiple Profile Versions

The TTI Success Insights DISC profile is available in a number of different versions for specific purposes. (e.g. The Interviewing Insights has been designed for selection, while the Management-Staff profile has been designed for coaching and training needs.)

Team Profile

The TTI Success Insights DISC profile is available in a team version so that multiple people’s profiles can be combined into a single profile to give a behavioural snap shot of the whole team. This is particularly useful when working with managers and leaders to understand the make up of their teams.

Free Group Wheel Feature

The TTI Success Insights Wheel is an industry-leading tool for visually representing an individual's DISC style. The wheel is now available in a team version so that multiple people can be plotted on a single wheel. There is no extra charge for this — simply ask a DTS Consultant to help with creating a free group wheel.

Job Profile - Workplace Behaviours

The TTI Success Insights DISC profile is available as a job benchmarking tool. This allows you to profile a position in any company by completing a simple 10-minute questionnaire. This profile helps you understand the behaviours that are most important to that job, which can then be used as an aid in the selection process.

Structured Debriefing Guide

These documents have been designed to assist DISC accredited professionals to debrief and provide feedback to their participants. The structured process leads you through each page of the profile step-by-step with activities and actions at each stage.

Up to 25 Pages

The TTI Success Insights DISC profile is available in multiple versions, with varying lengths of pages ranging from 10 to 25. This means that you can find a profile to suit your individual requirements.

No Adverse Impact

In order to comply with U.S. law, assessment tools must be accompanied with an adverse impact study. Essentially this means that they do not adversely impact any minority groups. In their commitment to excellent, the TTI Success Insights DISC profile has an adverse impact study.

Support Resources

In order to ensure that you receive maximum value from your investment, our profiles come with comprehensive support materials including workbook pages, debriefing guides, facilitator’s manuals, research papers, introductory e-books, games and more. This means that you can hit the ground running in both understanding and applying these assessments.

Applicable to Entire Employment Life-Cycle

These tools are not limited to just a single activity, such as interviewing. They are designed to be used at every step of the employee life-cycle including recruitment, induction, coaching & mentoring, leadership development, sales and customer service training, team building and performance management.

Beyond the World of Behaviour

Some assessment providers believe the world ends with DISC. In fact, they advertise that it's all they do. The TTI Success Insights research team have recognised DISC as a useful and powerful tool, however, it has its limits. That's why our profiling suite is made up of 5 sciences: behaviour, motivators, EQ, personal skills, acumen, and they continue to research additional areas.
