Excelently timed, Pink Truth posits their opinion of the D.I.S.C technique
Okay look, we all know that Pink Truth thinks that anything Mary Kay does (or Mary Kay people do) is manipulation, or greedy, or insincere. We all know that this forgone conclusion is based on outrageous circular reasoning, hatched together with, at best, anecdotal evidence.
They will see anything Mary Kay does as manipulative and "bad".
The question I want everyone to answer today is not whether or not the D.I.S.C. 'tool' is manipulative.
I am pretty sure that everyone here (or at least most) are mature enough to realize that this is simply a truthful observation of the way different personalities respond to different stimuli. Studying it and understanding it and even utilizing it in improving your communication is not (in and of itself) manipulative or "bad".
The question I want you to consider and respond to, if you would be so kind, is:
At what point does it become manipulative?
At what point, does understanding and using these principles cease to be simply a means to improve ones communication and becomes something much more insidious?
Or, is it impervious to being used this way?
Something to consider that may help put it in a different light, there are certain things that most guys don't understand about women. Understanding these things can help a man better express his love to a particular woman. It can also be used, allegedly, to manipulate women. But the question is, at what point does one use stop and the other begin? And, more importantly, how can you tell which is which?
Ah, these are the questions that I like!
