This is not purely a personality profile....but much more!
Extended DISC® Personal Analysis are self-assessments that identify your strengths and development areas.
Its success is based on its strong ability to provide information to make better decisions. Too often assessments tell us what we already know: “Oh yes, that’s me.” If a tool only provides information that the user is already aware of, it has very limited value.
Extended DISC® Personal Analysis is very easy to use. The questionnaire takes only 10 minutes to complete.
All of the information in the report is derived from your "natural behavioural style". It is a behavioural style that takes the least energy and effort, requires the least amount of concentration, and is usually the most pleasant to you. It is the mode that you normally use to react and is most frequently exhibited outwardly in your behaviour.
The Personal Analysis firstly divides all of the different behavioural styles into four main behavioural styles, and then into sub-styles. The analysis identifies your style from a style bank of 160 different styles. No style is better or worse than any other. They are simply diverse, each style has its own advantages and disadvantages.
eDISC does not measure intelligence, professional skills, or attitudes.
There are no good or bad categories nor ranking orders, and you will be provided with information regarding:
• Your "Performance Enabling" workplace environmental factors
• Your Motivational Factors
• Your "Environmental Distractors" which will have a negative effect on your performance
• Your Strengths
• Your "Under Pressure" Behaviour
• Causes of Stress, Signs of Stress and Stress Releasers
• Improving your Performance
• Your Relationship Role / Natural Role Within a Team
• How to Identify Others' Styles
• Communication Considerations with different styles
• Dos and Don'ts with the different Styles:

What makes Extended DISC® different from other assessments is that it is able to measure at a deeper unconscious level to exclude the impact of the environment.
In practice this means that the results show who you really are and not who you think you need to be in your existing environment.
As a result, the report identifies the true strengths and development areas to allow performance improvement.
