You may have heard about the “DISC” personality test, but it’s more than just a series of fun facts to know about yourself. It’s a detailed assessment that can help you form stronger and more effective people skills and professional relationships. Now that you’ve grasped the importance of your DISC personality type, take the test and see what your results say about you as an employee or job seeker!

(D) Dominance:

If you received a high “D” score, as an employee, you’re more likely to desire or obtain a leadership position. You’re strong-willed and competitive, so as a job seeker, you’re more likely to take bigger risks to yield bigger rewards. You’re direct and assertive tendencies make you very outgoing, but your preference to “tell it like it is” shows your task-oriented nature. Other core traits of “D” types include confidence, tenacity, and decisiveness.

(I) Influence:

“I” personality types, your mind is constantly on. You’re always seeking mental stimulation, usually through interactions with people. You thrive in social situations and live in a “big picture” mind space. As a job seeker, you’re more likely to shine during an in-person interview where you can showcase your excitement and innate people skills. As an employee, you’re more likely to be future-focused and a creative problem solver. Additional “I” traits include imaginative, positive, and energetic.

(S) Supportive

As a “S” personality type job seeker, you’re more likely to highlight your accomplishments in teamwork. You prefer to take a supportive, but still integral, role. You’re more likely to be a great listener and are genuinely interested in people and work relationships, so as an employee, your role might have managerial support aspects. You have a keen eye for workflow gaps and solutions to fix them! Other “S” traits include sincerity, logistical, and honest.

(C) Compliance

If you’re a “C” personality type, there’s a high chance that, as a job seeker, you take your time perfecting your resume and submitting thoughtful cover letters. You’re likely a perfectionist, which means you are looking for the right dental job, not just any dental job. This perfectionism plays a part in your role as an employee, too; you strive for accuracy and neatness. You’re task-oriented and take time to make sure each one is done right the first time. More “C” traits include concise, independent, and level-headed.

With this new perspective of your personality type, you’re ready to capitalize on your strengths as a job seeker and employee! Haven’t taken the test yet? Take it here and share it with us on our Facebook page!
