The Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) provides an accurate insight into how people behave at work. Here are some of the features:

 Background & Theory 

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Dr. Thomas Hendrickson developed William Moulton Marston’s DISC theory to produce the Thomas Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) for the work place.

Marston’s original theory stated that actions based upon emotions are an individual’s biosocial response to supportive or hostile social environments. These actions determine how the individual interacts with the environment.

It was theorised that the way in which the individual interacts with the environment takes four basic directions: tendencies to dominate, influence, submit and comply. Marston published his book ‘Emotions of Normal People’ in 1928, which described his theory of human consciousness in comprehensive detail.

The PPA, also known as the Thomas Behaviour assessment, determines whether individuals see themselves as responding to workplace situations that they perceive to be favourable or challenging, and reveals whether their response patterns are active or passive; thus classifying the individual’s behavioural preferences in terms of four domains: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance.
