The DiSC process is much more diverse than this, but Straw gives us a good start. That is all it really is, a good start. If you do not understand how to speak appropriately to people and control your own personal emotions and bias, this book will only help you a little. If you do, however, this book will really come as a handy guide.
I have since used DISC approach to train people in Salesmanship and Managerial Leadership program. I found it very acceptable by laymen and they can benefit from the insight.
Popular applicable psychology is gaining more and more momentum and become more widely used in business. The root of this type of analysis started from the Greek 2000+ years ago with Sanguine, Choleric, Phhlegmatic and Melancholic.
The original form of this DISC apporoach comes from William Moulton Marston 1926 book Emotions of Normal People.
There are similar materials come in many form: COLOR CODE (HARTMAN), Personality Plus, and several other books.
This is not to replace all the more-in-depth psychology tools that profesional use, but this is a simple approach to see different type of people and how we can be more effective in fast forwarding ourselves. We can also see others and learn how to make them better in their works.
The book contains a simple test and the description of every type and the combination of types. It is very well written and accurate. Although i feel a bit "dry" on the style of writing, i am totally satisfied and find the book of a very high value.
This is not a dense reading, and you can jump forth and back and see your/other people's type of personality and use it to our advantages.
Anyone interested on how to "see" him/herself and the other and how to make best use of psychological approach toward different type of people will be able to benefit from this book.
