What is DISC?
The DISC Model of Human Behavior describes the four temperament types: (Choleric) D-type, (Sanguine) I-type, (Phlegmatic) S-type, and (Melancholy) C-type. Everyone is a blend of DISC behavior. Indentifying your DISC personality blend/s is critical to effective wellness, relationship, leadership, and communication.

Historical Background of the DISC Personality Types and Profiles
The 4 Temperament Model of Human Behavior was first introduced by Hippocrates 400 years before Christ. He thought the four "humors" had something to do with the chemical makeup and color of the bile in the blood. Around 190 BC, Galen identified four classic types: Choleric, Sanguine, Phlegmatic, and Melancholy Types to describe human behavior and personality insights. In 1928, William Marston changed the old Greek titles to: Dominant, Inspirational, Submissive, and Compliant.
The Keirsey Temperament Sorter and Keirsey / Bates Profile also focus on the 4 Temperament Model, but is much less popular. David Keirsey combined two of the eight types into four distinct temperament categories. His sixteen personality types, much like the Myers / Briggs assessment, describe the most common human behavior types.
The problem with most Human Behavior Science assessments is that they tend to be overwhelming and too complicated. It is very difficult to remember 8 different letters with 16 various combinations. Focusing on 4 different "D, I, S, & C" letters is much more practical and simple. Using easier to remember letters as opposed to the ancient titles is better.
DISC As It Relates To Your Health
There are three critical factors to the success or failure of your health - diet, exercise, and food supplements. Combined, they make the difference in the quality of your life. Even if being overweight is not a problem for you, everyone needs to watch what they eat. Just because you don't gain weight, you should still be careful what you put into your body. Food is energy. Proper exercise is vital because it helps strengthens and tones the muscles. Because we live in a world filled with processed foods, supplying your body with the right nutrients is essential.
According to our personalities, we regularly respond to these three factors - diet, exercise, and food supplements. Awareness of our predictable patterns of behavior can help us protect our strengths and avoid our weaknesses. Review the insights below to improve your motivations.
