Many of us have taken them as part of a seminar, a work project or even a team building exercise. DISC or Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliances personality tests are a great way to gain insight on oneself and how we interact with others. There are several varieties and I've even seen them pop up on some of those social media quizzes.
After listening to my kid share his results, I reached for a book on the bookshelf that I had recently received for review titled "The Chameleon: Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone Who Has a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does." We read through a couple of pages and he was really excited even wanting to share with his teacher. The teacher loved the book saying "The Chameleon is an awesome tool to demonstrate personality types in a unique way." She highly recommends it for college students and I couldn't agree more adding the book would make a great gift for someone entering the workforce and a definite teambuilding resource.
The Chameleon: Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone Who Has a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does. Written by Merrick Rosenberg co-author of Taking Flight!: Master the DISC Styles to Transform Your Career, Your Relationships, Your Life - this engaging book explores the different DISC personalities in a fun, relatable and thought-provoking manner.
Laugh and learn through 22 entertaining fables that reflect the challenges you experience in your life story through the lens of the DISC styles. Guided by an all-knowing chameleon, four unassuming birds play the roles of the DISC styles. This is pretty neat because most other DISC personality tests I've seen designate either a Type A, B, C, or D personality or some overlapping of the four. Rosenberg's light-hearted approach is one that is truly relatable. The insights gained from their interactions and struggles will lift you to new heights of understanding yourself and others.
