Happy science: sound methodology and linguistic diversity

The science behind Happy Assessment blends extensive social science research and innovative measurement methods to tackle workplace challenges and boost productivity. This approach ensures that the behavioral and trait measurements are accurate, relevant, and valid.

This is achieved through:

  • 1.

    Theory-driven constructs

    We focus on critical workplace attributes, grounded in established theories, ensuring each construct is thoroughly analyzed and clearly defined

  • 2.

    Inclusive sampling

    Our diverse sample set guarantees applicability across all sectors, employing rigorous scientific methodologies

  • 3.

    Advanced psychometric models

    We utilize cutting-edge psychometric theories, including machine learning algorithms, for accurate and reliable measurements that also support linguistic nuances


Happy Assessment is proven to be effective across different workplace environments

Because Happy Assessment is grounded in well-researched psychological principles, it is universally applicable.

Happy Assessment places a strong emphasis on the linguistic agency of the respondent, acknowledging that language profoundly affects self-expression and understanding

It was intentionally developed in a way that would empower individuals to express themselves in their own words, valuing the diversity of thought and communication styles in a dynamic workforce.

Such linguistic flexibility enhances the authenticity and precision of responses, providing deeper insights into individual strengths, preferences, and development areas. By allowing people to have the space within the platform to define themselves, Happy Assessment fosters a more inclusive and understanding workplace, where every voice is heard, respected, and valued. This commitment to linguistic inclusivity not only enriches the assessment experience but also strengthens the overall organizational understanding and cohesion.

Bridging DISC and diverse Workstyles

Happy Assessment harnesses the power of the DISC model, reimagined for today's workplace

DISC is a simple way to understand four major dimensions of behavior:


Individuals with a high D style tend to be direct, results-oriented, firm, strong-willed, and forceful


People with a high I style are usually described as being outgoing, optimistic, lively, enthusiastic, and communicative


Individuals who exhibit a high S style are often seen as calm, patient, predictable, deliberate, stable, and consistent


Those with a high C style are often analytical, reserved, precise, private, systematic, and careful

The DISC model is great at helping teams improve how they work with each other and is widely used in businesses across the world to enhance team cohesion, leadership development, and personal growth

Happy includes the four primary Workstyles and expands to include four additional blended Workstyles, recognizing the unique combination of traits in each individual

This ensures deeper and more actionable insights into team dynamics and individual behaviors
