PLEASE NOTE: Every applicants' DISC results will vary. The information below is a generalization, based on basic job demands. Please carefully evaluate the DISC scores of each applicant you consider- your needs may vary from our generalized suggestions.
Programmers Because of the nature of computer programming, a high "C" rating is recommended- programmers must be analytical and detail-oriented by nature, which can be determined by a high "C" score. The next important score to consider for a programmer may be their "D" score: independent self-starters are indispensable as programmers. Because programmers tend to work independently, a higher "I" or "S" score may not be as relevant as their "D" and "C" scores. Keep in mind: "I" and "S" scores are not disadvantageous by any means- the preferable employee is balanced and skilled in multiple areas. In the case of a programmer, it's advisable that the higher scores in the assessment lean toward the "D" and "C" areas.
Suggested Scoring for Programmers:
Webmaster: A webmaster, or web developer, should also score highly in the "C" area. Because of the ever-changing nature of the Internet, there is a constant need to communicate with your developer, in order to adapt your content the needs of consumers. Given those circumstances, it may be preferable to hire a webmaster with a somewhat balanced "D" and "S" scores. A team-player is always easy to communicate with, and a self-starter is a must. Again- your applicant will most likely score in all DISC areas, and a balanced employee usually means balanced work. In the case of the webmaster, it is advisable to look for an applicant with a high "C" score, close to the same "D" and "S" scores, and some "I" score.
Suggested Scoring for Webmasters:
Content Writer: Content writers require more of a balanced DISC score than do webmasters or programmers. Content writers will be working very closely with you and interpreting your ideas into creative writing. A high "I " score accounts for creativity and a moderate "S" score should satisfy communication requirements. In order for your business to be viewed as credible, your content should be free of spelling and grammatical errors, making "C" an important score as well. It is important for a content writer to conform to your needs, as a result, the strong-willed "D" score may not be as requisite.
Suggested Scoring for Content Writers:
Graphic Designer: Graphic designers are digital artists, so you may notice that many score highly in the "I" area. We recommend a somewhat balanced "I" and "S" score, to offset creativity and communication. Graphic designers should also be detail oriented, making the "C " score important as well. A moderate-to-low "D" score is preferable to minimize confrontation when it comes to communication (though some "D" score is good- it can indicate an applicant's motivation).
Suggested Scoring for Graphic Designers:
Project Manager: Project managers require a balanced DISC score. They should be efficient in all four areas; efficient worker "D," enthusiastic leader "I," good communicator/listener "S," analytical thinker "C." Your project may require a manager who is stronger in one area than another. A better understanding of each DISC trait will help you find a project manager who is tailored to your needs.
