DISG Dimensions: What does your color family reveal about you?

The DISG personality test and your color family give you information about who you are, which strengths and weaknesses you have and where hidden talents lie dormant in you. But the test can do a lot more than just show you which of the four Behavioral Dimensions you belong to. There are not only dominant, initiative, steady and conscientious people, but a lot in between. Because we are all unique and so is our personality absolutely individually knitted. The DISG model is very accurate and therefore also takes into account the different characteristics.

In this magazine article we would like to show you how your Colour family according to the results of your DISC personality test is assigned to. This gives you an even deeper insight into the world of the DISG model and tells you everything about the background of your colour family.

The four DISG behavioural dimensions

As you may know, there are basically four personality dimensions, colored as follows: Red (dominant), yellow (influencing), green (steady) and blue (cautious). Your color family will be defined by the most intense dimensions in your Behavioral patterns determined. Depending on your pattern, you have one dominant dimension, two dominant dimensions, or three dominant dimensions. Because no human being can be pigeonholed. 

As mentioned at the outset, we are all very different individuals to whom four behavioural dimensions alone would not do justice. Therefore the DISC model much more profound and distinguishes 20 personality types. The four dimensions (dominant, steady, conscientious, proactive) can also exist side by side! They complement each other and in this way form new constellations. 

A dominant dimension: what does that mean?

If you one dominant dimension you belong to the color family of that dimension. Small example: Your dominant dimension is red, so that your color family is also red. For this we use the term "primary behavior". You already know the four behavioral dimensions:

  • Red: The dominant personality type, which we also call a pioneer, likes to take on new challenges, which he works on with determination. He is determined and pursues a strong vision.
  • YellowThe initiative entertainer has a need for attention, but also enjoys pleasing others. He likes to communicate, is open and adventurous and usually in a very optimistic mood. 
  • Green: The steady type is also a sociable person and loves harmony. As a stabilizer, he often makes sure that other people are doing well and is characterized by his great trustworthiness. 
  • BlueLast but not least - the conscientious one. A perfectionist, he likes to deliver high quality and sometimes prefers to surround himself with things rather than people. He is extremely precise.

Two dominant dimensions: What does that mean to you? 

If you two dominant behavioural dimensions then you have a primary behavior (your most intense dimension) and a secondary behavior (the second most intense dimension). In this case, your color family is determined by its primary behavior. These different tendencies are divided as follows: 

  • Red-YellowThe future-oriented pioneer spurs others on and likes to be creative. 
  • Red-Green: The pacesetter is characterized by tenacity and unwavering determination.
  • Red-Blue: A direct contemporary who has high expectations of himself and his fellow man - this is the inventor.
  • Yellow-red: The Persuader gets things done and coordinates the work of others with great skill.
  • Yellow-Green: The harmonizer senses the needs of others and is happy to support them when they reach a low point. 
  • Yellow-Blue: The strategist is excellent at improvising, is confident and changes direction when stuck.
  • Green-RedZeal, reliability and diligence: these three characteristics describe the specialist perfectly.
  • Green-YellowThe helper quickly forgets his own needs, sacrifices himself and easily exhausts himself.
  • Green-BlueThe preserver attaches great importance to continuity. He loves rituals and is very conscious of tradition. 
  • Blue-RedThe experimenter often finds it difficult to make decisions, but at the same time is a person who likes to develop solutions to problems. 
  • Blue-Yellow: The appraiser implements his plans with the utmost consistency, trying to meet all expectations.
  • Blue-Green: The critical thinker can only open up and show his true self in the circle of his closest confidants.

3 dominant dimensions: What does that say about you?

The last possibility your DISG test may reveal: You have three dominant dimensions. In this case, you exhibit a very versatile and multi-faceted behavior. Your color family in this case is represented by the Combination of the three dimensions instead of your most intense dimension.

More specifically, someone with the pattern "red-yellow-blue" falls into the red color family. The pattern "red-yellow-green" falls into the yellow family. The pattern "yellow-green-blue" belongs to the green color family. And the pattern "red-green-blue" belongs to the blue type. This is completely independent of the order of dimensional intensity.

  • Red-yellow-blue: The mediator is interested in other people, but can seem a bit brusque in some situations.
  • Yellow-Green-Red: The coordinator is an absolute team player who, through his own People skills wants to be successful.
  • Green-Blue-Yellow: The practitioner makes others feel needed and treats their work with great respect.
  • Blue-Red-Green: The Life motto of the designer is to act positively and expect the worst.

Conclusion: The systematics of the dominant DISG dimensions

The assignment of the color families with versatile Types of behavior has been studied and validated across our data points by Dr. Geier. This is why your most intense dimension may be yellow, but you are still in the green family.

Long story short: The ratings of the DISC personality test are extremely precise and are based on years of Research and optimization. You have now gained deep insight into the systematics of the test and each color family, and thus learned the tremendous accuracy behind the model.
