- It's common for people to want to be a "high D" on the DISC profile.
- DISC gives you a snapshot of what your behavior style is and how you appear to other people.

- Tony is a "High I," and generally finds it very easy to "be around people."
- Amy helps people grow in areas they need to master to be effective.
- DISC does not measure what people can and cannot do.
- "High D" people generally are impatient problem-solvers who like to move at a fast pace.
- We tend to marry our opposites, but at work, we often clash with our opposites.
- The most successful people are those that learn how other people work, and how they want to be treated. (Not all successful people are "High D.")
