Famous DISC Characters

Famous DISC Characters

21 Oct, 2014
By TTI Success Insights

We are often asked by the people we work with for examples of famous movie characters as well as real life people and how they fit in the DISC framework. We have broken the post into three parts. In the first part of the post we have put together a collection of characters who might represent each of the behavioural styles. The second part of the post is a list of famous Australian's, who we might guess their behavioural style (based on their public face at least). And the third part of the post is examples from other parts of the world.
