DISCAsiaPlus Personality System
DISCAsiaPlus is an upgraded version of the DISC Personality Profiling System. While other DISC vendors utilize western subjects as their research database, DISCAsiaPlus uses Asian subjects as their research data. The Asians subjects include China and Indian nationals, Hongkongers, Singaporeans, Malaysians, Vietnamese and Mongolians. By doing so, it addresses the Asian cultural behaviors into the instrument. Another upgraded element of DISCAsiaPlus is in the inclusion of Emotional Response which is the tendency to experience negative emotions and distress – a component that other DISC vendors does not include.

TrainingThe power of DISCAsiaPlus lies in one’s ability to interpret and make sense
of the report. There are two disciplines embedded in our training:
descriptive and prescriptive. We equip our participants with the skill and
knowledge to blend and integrate all the four factors and their emotional
response. The proof of this ability will be validated when they are able to
write a one-page description of any profile graph. Acquiring the ability to
interpret is only one aspect of our training. The other aspect is to be able to
utilize the training in practical situations such as communication, leadership,
team build, selection, personnel development and others.

Inclusion of Emotional Response
While the DISC personality profiling is by far one of the most used personality profiling system and perhaps one of the oldest personality theories that is still being used today, recent personality theories have raised the need for DISC to keep in step with recent developments. DISCAsiaPlus has incorporated the latest personality theory with an added dimension on Emotional Response. This effectively enhances the DISCAsiaPlus system to measure 5 dimensions instead of the usual four dimensions, D, I, S and C. Essentially Emotional response measures the tendency to experience negative emotions and distress which is absent in other DISC instruments.
“Your emotions make you human. Even the unpleasant ones have a purpose. Don’t lock them away. If you ignore them, they just get louder and angrier.”
