What is Extended DISC?
The Extended DISC Behavioural Assessment is a self-assessment that identifies the strengths and development areas of an individual. An Extended DISC personal analysis report provides specific and unique tips for individuals to support their development and enhance communication and leadership in the workplace. Using our Extended DISC assessments we help consultants whose clients are frustrated with the challenges of workplace behaviour and its effect of productivity. By partnering with consultants, 97% have noticed a positive impact on company culture and workplace behaviour.
The Extended DISC test is quick and easy to implement, taking candidates only 8-10 minutes to answer. What makes an Extended DISC Behavioural Analysis different from other assessments is that it can measure unconscious behaviour to exclude the impact of the environment. This allows you to identify a person’s natural behavioural style and how they feel they need to adjust in their current environment. From this comparison we cannot identify a number of key feelings such as pressure and lack of confidence which enhance employee mental health and wellbeing.
Furthermore, the Extended DISC assessment questionnaire has strict internal rules for identifying and not processing further, results that do not carry the reliability required. If there was no process for identifying invalid results (like most instruments do not have) the overall validity of the instrument would not be as reliable.
Extended DISC provides organisations with an easy to use framework to identify human behaviour. The tool supports individuals and businesses to improve relationships, communication and critical aspects of business such as management and sales. An Extended DISC leadership assessment supports the development of leadership skills and also teaches leaders to communicate and delegate effectively to employees.
Extended DISC assessments are based on concepts of human behaviour from well-renowned psychologists and behavioural theorists. Today Extended DISC assessments are part of human management systems of organisations all across the world, with over one million assessments completed annually.
Extended DISC Behavioural Assessments are the only DISC assessments in the world that can be completely customised to your unique needs and applications.

Extended DISC Assessment
Extended DISC International was founded in 1991 by Jukka Sappinen, an MBA graduate from the Helsinki School of Economics. Sappinen spent his early professional years consulting clients with the use of psychometric tools.
A profound understanding of the gap between existing tools and corporate needs enabled Jukka to develop what his clients were looking for. A comprehensive toolset that could be used to generate understandable, integrated information on an individual, team management, or entire organisation.
The instrument was developed and honed over several years (1991 – 1994), in Finland with the cooperation of key clients and experts in psychology, statistics, HR, consulting and IT. In 1994, the Extended DISC assessment questionnaire was launched and was introduced to international markets in 1997. The Australasian Extended DISC Partner (now HR Profiling Solutions) opened in 1998.
Extended DISC is one of the top five psychometric tools in the field today, and has spread to over 80 countries, with an annual growth rate of 20-50%. The Extended DISC profile, powered by the FinxS Online Platform, has been translated into 75 languages and is used by thousands of people around the world every day.
Extended DISC is the world's fastest-growing assessment system, a position maintained by continuing its essential research and development work. Which far outpaces competitors in innovation and customisation of highly validated profiles and related products. At the time of its launch back in 1994, the Extended DISC profile was the first computer-based application of its kind. At the time, all other competitors were using paper-based questionnaires. FinxS, the Extended DISC online operating system, is the most flexible and customisable assessment suite currently on the market with development continuing on a day to day basis.
As CEO, Jukka Sappinen states: "We recognise that the most satisfied people work at the best companies. Our goal is to provide our clients with the information they need to keep their best and brightest motivated and make the most of their strengths, which helps to ensure a better future for all."
