DISC the Candidates

You’ve seen them on TV and in the papers - smiling, frowning, trying to stay cool under pressure. As DISC is measurable, observable behavior, how would you describe each candidate’s DISC graph - their behavioral style? What have you heard and seen?

Need help? The following adjectives were used to describe the candidates by a variety of people in the media. These sets of characteristics were implied and stated by multiple sources on more than one occasion.

See if you can recognize which pattern goes with what type of DISC style profile.
