    This is exactly what I need to do right now and I suck at it…lol I want to do everything so I know how it works. But I realize I need to delegate some things as a practical matter.

  2. DavidBarton says:

    I forgot to mention that the DISC metric pretty much nailed me or at least it nailed the way I see myself. Thank you. It will be valuable information in my new directions.

  3. I don’t feel DISC is comprehensive or scientific in any way. It’s a cute “gimmick”…only 14 subjective questions to harvest emails. I think the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is much more science based, but it would be harder to use in a squeeze page. I’m an INTJ, by the way.

    • mrichman, I can understand your concern but it is far from a gimmick. The DISC profile does not define every aspect about you, just as the Myers-Briggs does not show you how you best like to work and be treated in life. If you are honest with yourself while taking the profile (you did take the test didn’t you?) you will find positive insight with the DISC that only you can truly assess over time. We believe it beats being pigeon-holed as a personality type suited for only a narrowly pre-selected type of career. You can thrive anywhere as long as your needs are being met and you’ve adjusted your habits to match your natural talents.

      • Jay,

        Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I did indeed take the DISC. I am a “High D”, which correlates well with my INTJ-ness. Now that I understand it a little better, I would say that DISC is more complimentary to MBTI than it is competitive.

        I just started reading The Profitable Consultant yesterday as well. I’m sure I’ll have some provocative thoughts to share soon.

        For now, I’m wrestling with a UVP 🙂

        Best,
        Mark Richman

        • Great! If you have any other questions, I will try to answer them the best I can through the comments.

        • Jay Niblick says:

          Complimentary – yes. I’m a big fan of having all kinds of metrics, so combining MBTI with DISC, and any other validated assessments can only help. I would caution you to not take too many, but then you’re a high D (like me), so cautions to not get bogged down in too many details is a moot point:) Enjoy that UVP!

          • I’m not sure if this is the appropriate forum in which to seek advice, but in drafting my copy, should I be referring to myself or my corporate entity? I plan to be a solo practitioner, so the branding might get confusing if I mix “Mark Richman” with “XYZ, Inc.”, no?

  4. I wish I’d had this advice 5 years ago. I spent so much time being the typical west of Scotland mean Scot that I wasted so much time doing menial tasks and the opportunity cost of this is phenomenal.
