There are a lot of temperament tests available; this one simply gives you a hint where you are on the DiSC scale. For a free temperament test drop me an email at warfieldh(at)gmail(dot)com.
1) Are you naturally outgoing? Do others consider you outgoing? If you are outgoing, are you naturally talkative?
If you answered yes to these you are most likely an “I” on the DiSC scale. The “I” stands for Influence and the Greek term is Sanguine.
2) Are you goal-directed and a “driver”? Are you mainly concerned with getting things done? Do you tend to make quick decisions?
Yes to these questions may indicate you are the “D” in DiSC. The Greek term is Choleric and the term “Type A” is often used to describe this temperament type.
3) If you do NOT consider yourself naturally outgoing, are you detailed? Do others notice that you are careful about order and details?
If so, you are probably a “C” on the DiSC scale. “C” stands for Cautious or conscientious and the Greek term is Melancholy.
4) Finally, if you are not known for being naturally outgoing, are you best known for being easy to get along with, calm and steady?
This type is the “S” on the DiSC scale and the “S” stands for Steadiness, demonstrating patience. The Greek term for this type is Phlegmatic.
I must emphasize that temperament is always modified by life experience and circumstances — we call this our personality. And each of us is a blend of TWO of these four types.
