Comparative Study of MBTI and DISC

Dr. Sarada Prasanna Patra, Dr. Manjusmita Dash

Abstract :

The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument is the most widely used personality assessment test in corporate sectors. The MBTI assessment is a more general instrument that provides a set of preferences and a model for understanding the behavior of self and others across a variety of situations, productivity, and efficiency in a work environment. The MBTI measures preferences along four dichotomies: Extraversion–Introversion, Sensing–Intuition, Thinking–Feeling, and Judging–Perceiving. In his 1928 book, The Emotions of Normal People .Dr. William Marston, a physiological psychologist, devised a new type of biaxial model, to describe the reactions of ordinary people in everyday situations. That biaxial model forms the ultimate basis of DISC. It studied how an individual perceived him or herself in a situation, the resulting emotions of the perception, and the likely subsequent behavior. Marstonís model has two critical dimensions: (1) The situation is perceived as either favorable or unfavorable (2) The individual perceives him or herself as more or less powerful as the situation Both the DISC assessment and the MBTI instrument have reasonable psychometric, or measurement, properties. Generally, two criteria are used to evaluate the measurement properties of an instrument: reliability and validity. Both the MBTI assessment and the DISC instrument report a number of differing validity studies, which suggest that both assessments possess reasonable reliability and validity
