    So for me, it's C, at 63.
    DISC is about patterns and it's oriented toward behavior rather than mere individual processes.
    I am both Task and People oriented (High D and I.) That's why there is a profile for people like me, who have a high score in both.
    What I have is called a Z pattern, so after taking the test if you connect my dots it looks similar to this:



    You don't simply take the highest number of all your scores and ignore the others. It doesn't work that way.

    Adaptive 42
    Reserved.interacting 50
    Supportive 60
    Unconventional 49

    General Description
    As a Supporter, you naturally thrive when given the opportunity to help, encourage, or cooperate with others. You make loyal friends and employees and gain fulfillment by helping make others successful.

    Typical Areas of Strength
    Supporters, like you, typically are excellent team players, at home or at work, due to your desire to cooperate, help others, listen, be patient, loyal, steady, and support the efforts of those in charge.

    Typical Areas of Struggle
    You may sometimes undermine your effectiveness by compromising too much, vacillating on important decisions, being too passive, resisting change, or compromising quality to protect the feelings of others.

    Your Preferred Activities
    Because you work at a steady pace, you demonstrate an excellent ability to follow through on projects. You cooperate well with others in order to complete activities.

    Your Communication Style
    You communicate best by using your superior relational and listening skills to convey care and compassion to people in need.

    But you also have to understand that there are several different versions of DISC now, and this is one I had never seen before.
    Originally, the concept was about assigning you one of the letters, which comprised a "type" if you will.
    This site now has added a lot to it, and made multiple types out of it, which I have to look into.

    As for people/task; I too am both, but in different areas. Interaction Style (INP) is informing, which is people-focused (as opposed to directive, which is task-focused); but temperament (NT) is structure-oriented which is task focused (as opposed to motive, which is people-focused).
    I don't know if this new DiSC system incorporates these layers somehow, but it would be quite interesting if it did.

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    Took this again, and finally got something other than Transition...

    Your profile type is Deep Thinker
    A-41
    R-47
    S-55
    C-57

    General Description
    As a Deep Thinker, you are analytical, logical, and philosophical in your sincere search for meaning, truth, and purpose in life. You are able to cut through emotion and confusion to draw incisive conclusions from observations, data, and research.

    Typical Areas of Strength
    Deep Thinkers, like you, tend to be logical, organized, conscientious, thorough, analytical, and prepared. You are very focused and strive for high standards, precision, and integrity in all you do.

    Typical Areas of Struggle
    Due to your tendency to be somewhat perfectionist in your approach to life, you may feel more disappointment than most people when truth or your ideals are violated. At times, your family and friends may feel that you are hypersensitive and too easily offended by suggestions or criticism.

    Your Preferred Activities
    To maximize your talents, you look for situations in which you can be given time to process ideas at a deep level -- to think, reason, analyze, and organize details into logical, creative, and pragmatic solutions.

    Your Communication Style
    You tend to communicate impersonally through the logical presentation of well-thought-out ideas and facts. Often, the explanations of your thought processes go far deeper than others wish to explore.

    I got Supporter from trying the test.

    I did this in a class environment once and had a high S and moderate C.

    I found this mbti and disc correlation which is interesting.

    Sas - your profile type is Networker

    55

    70

    33

    44

    General Description
    As a Networker, you enjoy new people, new situations, and new environments. You build relationships and interact with an ever-widening circle of contacts outside of the home. You tend to enjoy using your verbal skills and wit to be engaging and persuasive.

    Typical Areas of Strength
    Networkers, like you, are normally strong communicators. You are outgoing, engaging, lively, optimistic, gregarious, persuasive, fun-loving, enthusiastic, and inspiring.

    Typical Areas of Struggle
    You may sometimes be prone to talking too much, being disorganized, impulsive, too emotional, too optimistic, or exaggerating. Sometimes you tend to overcommit and overlook key details.

    Your Preferred Activities
    Because you function best when given the opportunity to influence, meet, or entertain others, you need variety and opportunities to present your new creative ideas along with a minimum of detail work.

    Your Communication Style
    You thrive when given the opportunity to communicate new ideas, concepts, or the latest information to a group.

    hmm.. I guess I'm the only Driver so far. And I think it's bizarre and not terribly accurate (it's basically equating me to an ENTJ. Although, I DID answer the questions more situationally in terms of how I tend to 'prioritize' in the workplace, since it's tied to work environments). But, then, in the end my scores are pretty darn close and there isn't a clear, obvious 'winner'. I can't exactly find fault with where I lie on each of the four dichotomies, I'm just not sure it's weighted correctly.

    "your profile type is Director"

    I don't think the format of that test really works, for me at least... because of the lack of better options and inability to rank certain attributes as equal, it exaggerated my more expressive and courageous tendencies. I guess it does show that in a situation where I am forced to pick between "not like me" and "very not like me," I look a lot more like an ExxJ

    Perhaps the concept could work, just in a different format. I have never worked with the DISC before.
