DiSC Personality Types and Johari Window for Characters

Re-purpose tools used by HR departments and managers. Rather than to analyze real-life people to make better workspaces, use them in reverse to build up characters. Motivation, leadership style and how they respond to authority themselves, typical decorations, etc. Here are team-building graphs which can be used for fun, to analyze and/or create new characters’ behaviors and personality traits:

Within the same hive, outgoing leaders such as Karl and Laura would place very differently than the reserved scientists such as Tommy and Nathan.

For actors who portrayed multiple Wraith, the chart gives more appreciation for how the roles demanded different acting skill sets. Erik seems data-oriented and demanding of perfection and factual proofs while Greg seems very dominant, determined, and confronts challenges directly.

Do you see yourself in any of these types? Do you think your results would have changed over the years?
