William Moulton Marston (May 9, 1893 – May 2, 1947was an American psychologist, lawyer, inventor, and a writer, known for creating the iconic character Wonder Woman. Marston went by the pen name Charles Moulton and used his writing skills to advocate for women's rights. In addition to his written success, Marston was also credited with developing the systolic blood pressure measurement system used in the contemporary polygraph test. As a psychologist, Marston published his seminal work in 1929 -- Emotions of Normal People -- which was later developed into the DiSC Theory. His ideas were further developed into a personality assessment that is still used by major organizations such as the NCAA and taught in top MBA programs such as at Harvard and Wharton Business Schools.
