In a nutshell the puzzle is below and is driving me nuts. Any help would most greatly appreciated.

DISC is now more commonly an acronym for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. All individuals display characteristics of all four factors which can be identified as being either 'High' or 'Low'.

Dominance refers to how individuals relate to control, power and authority. eg, High = Competitive, Low = Unassuming
Influence refers to how individuals relate to others and styles of communication. eg, High = Confident, Low = Retiring
Steadiness refers to individual's pace and patience. eg, High = Relaxed, Low = Tense
Compliance refers to how an individual relates to policy, structure and organisation. eg, High = Disciplined, Low = Defiant

Read the description of the cache below, decide which characteristics refer to which factor, both High and Low, then transfer the numbers into the co-ordinates to find the cache!

'This cache is located under a rather forceful and assertive container - it really can't be missed when you have the co-ordinates. It is a mobile little number and can be quite restless and active when you pick it up, so please be alert so as not to drop it and use firm handling. It is very demonstrative and fidgety and can take on different shapes. One would even say it was quite independent with a mind of it's own. I'm sure it will be a positive experience to find it.

The cache itself is quite reserved, however, and appears a little self-conscious. It is fairly compliant and logical in caching terms with a log book, pencil, FTF medal, TB and room for small items. Please be careful
and systematic when replacing it under the outer as it could easily get stuck - rigid to be precise! But being dependable cachers, you will be accurate in this and be accomodating to the enjoyment of others, won't you?'

Now decide how many characteristics displayed relate to High D, Low D, etc and transfer into the co-ordinates below:

N 53 High D High C High S Low C 1
W002 High I 9 Low D Low I Low S

Hint: Please note that the characteristics are mixed up between the descriptions of the cache and outer and some may be perceived as relating to more than one factor but do only apply to one!! There are 22 in total and are all one word characteristics.... (hyphenated word counts as one)

The 22 words I have are:


Many thanks in advance.

Is this a puzzle or torture? I am no good at puzzles that are longer and more complicated than Shakespeare's Complete Works. Sorry! - but there are some very clever people on here, luckily.
