Your DISC behavioral style is how you DO things – those behavioral habits you do automatically – without thinking. And they are observable by others. But if you think about the people you really admire, you’ll find that what makes someone popular, successful, and self-confident are the qualities they are BEING, or put another way the character virtues they are using such as assertiveness, friendliness, patience or diligence. Initially, these qualities come from what you are taught as your family values and what defines the culture you belong to.
However in every culture there are universal Character Virtues that everyone has the capacity to develop and use, not matter what DISC style they are using.
