"People say I make strange choices, but they're not strange for me. My sickness is that I'm fascinated by human behavior, by what's underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people." — Johnny Depp

If your friend quack's like a duck then you know one thing for sure: they're quaking up! But what you won't know is why they're doing this.
The good news is that by definition observable behaviors are observable, and what we can observe we can measure and look for patterns. And it's these patterns that help us to better understand and communicate with others.
The same is true for understanding yourself. How many times have you told yourself that you were going to break a bad habit, only to find yourself doing the every thing that you hate, again and again? intentions can be questioned, but behavior is morally undeniable.
By seeking to explore and understand the various models of behavior you'll be well armed to more effectively get along with yourself and with others, which is why over the next four episodes we'll be exploring four primary behavior models in a series called DISC Discoveries.
