The DISC test is shorter in length than MBTI (typically 20-30 questions for DISC, up to 90 for most MBTI tests)

  • MBTI assumes that personality is fixed and unlikely to change, while DISC is more open to the possibility that different situations and environments might bring out different personality traits in an individuals
  • MBTI is largely an indicator of an individual’s internal thinking, while DISC is designed to measure how personality translates to external behavior
  • MBTI is a good assessment tool for the individual looking for self-knowledge.
