DISC is based on the work of the renowned psychologist Dr William Moulton Marston (1893) a Harvard educated scholar and author. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Dr. Thomas Hendrickson of TM Hendrickson and Associates, developed Marston’s insights further to produce the Personal Profile Analysis for the workplace. Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) has received a certificate of registration from the British Psychological Society (BPS) to confirm it meets all the psychometric requirements for use as a behavioural analysis tool. Quinn Training is a accredited certified provider of these instruments and is fully qualified in their use.
