your OCEAN personality analysis results
In order to interpret your raw trait scores, they were compared to a sample of millions of people, who have to completed the full myPersonality Big Five questionnaire. This allows the way you describe yourself to be put in the context of how other people responded to the questionnaire. You should remember that there are no fundamentally good or bad personalities, as each trait description has both potential advantages and disadvantages.
Openness to experience describes a dimension of personality that distinguishes imaginative, creative people from down-to-earth, conventional people. This trait refers to the extent to which people prefer novelty versus convention. Your response to the questionnaire indicate that you are intellectually curious and appreciative of what you consider beautiful, no matter what others think. You might say that your imagination is vivid and makes you more creative than many others.

From your responses it appears that more than most you enjoy seeing your long-term plans come to fruition.
Extraversion is marked by pronounced engagement with the external world, versus being comfortable with your own company. This trait refers to the extent to which we enjoy company and seek excitement and stimulation. Your responses to the questionnaire indicate that you prefer low-key social occasions with a few close friends. You might say that it’s not that you are afraid of large parties; they are just not that fun for you.
Agreeableness reflects individual differences in concern with cooperation and social harmony. This trait refers to the way people express their opinions and manage relationships. Your responses to the questionnaire indicate that you can be found by other people to be difficult to get along with when you first meet, as you can be suspicious of others’ motives. Your responses suggest that over time though people warm to you and you to others, although that doesn’t stop you telling others “how it is”.
Stability refers to the tendency to experience negative emotions. this trait refers to the way people cope and respond to life’s demands.

your DISC profile analysis results
In the more recent versions of DISC, the model is represented with a circle, illustrating the four styles as four areas in the circle. This representation of the disc model links to the original, which was also represented in a circle. With colours and the right explanations, it is easier to view and understand the effort and adapting it takes for a particular style to reach common ground with another style.
Perceives oneself as more powerful than the environment, and perceives the environment as unfavourable
Perceives oneself as more powerful than the environment, and also perceives the environment as favourable
Perceives oneself as less powerful than the environment, and also perceives the environment as favourable
Perceives oneself as less powerful than the environment, and perceives the environment as unfavourable
Some companies use the DISC assessment as a way to screen potential employees, with the thought that a certain personality type would be better or worse in certain jobs or positions. This is not what the disc Assessment was initially designed for. Disc is a tool to get to know oneself , others and behaviour in interpersonal situations better.
The best use of disc is to learn more about yourself, others and how to deal in situations where interpersonal relationships are involved. Some more specific versions of the disc assessment will help understand how one person would be likely to react in specific team, management or leadership situations, given her or his disc style.
The assessment has been used to determine leadership. There are different leadership methods and styles that coincide with each personality type, which could help leaders be more effective.

The big idea for data inspired by illness
When Jamie Heywood’s brother was diagnosed with ALS, he devoted his life to fighting the disease as well. The Heywood brothers built an ingenious website where people share and track data on their illnesses — and they discovered that the collective data had enormous power to comfort, explain and predict.
Teach statistics before calculus!
Arthur Benjamin: Someone always asks the math teacher, “Am I going to use calculus in real life?” And for most of us, says Arthur Benjamin, the answer is no. He offers a bold proposal on how to make math education relevant in the digital age.
Let’s use video to reinvent education
Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script — give students video lectures to watch at home, and do “homework” in the classroom with the teacher available to help.
The happy secret to better work
Shawn Achor is the CEO of Good Think Inc., where he researches and teaches about positive psychology. We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.
The beauty of data visualisation
David McCandless turns complex data sets (like worldwide military spending, media buzz, Facebook status updates) into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut — and it may just change the way we see the world.
The rise of human-computer cooperation
Shyam Sankar looks for clues in big and disparate data sets. Computing alone can’t solve the world’s problems. Data mining innovator Shyam Sankar explains why solving big problems is not about the right algorithm, but rather the right symbiotic relationship between computation and human creativity.
The best stats you’ve ever seen
In Hans Rosling’s hands, data sings. Global trends in health and economics come to vivid life. And the big picture of global development—with some surprisingly good news—snaps into sharp focus.

How I hacked online dating
Amy Webb was having no luck with online dating. The dates she liked didn’t write her back, and her own profile attracted crickets (and worse). So, as any fan of data would do: she started making a spreadsheet. Hear the story of how she went on to hack her online dating life — with frustrating, funny and life-changing results.
Why smart statistics are the key
When she became the attorney general of New Jersey in 2007, Anne Milgram quickly discovered a few startling facts: not only did her team not really know who they were putting in jail, but they had no way of understanding if their decisions were actually making the public safer. And so began her ongoing, inspirational quest to bring data analytics and statistical analysis to the US criminal justice system.
Visualising crowd-sourced data
Artist Aaron Koblin takes vast amounts of data — and at times vast numbers of people — and weaves them into stunning visualizations. From elegant lines tracing airline flights, to landscapes of mobile phone data, to a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced drawings. His works brilliantly explore how modern technology can make us more human.
