People talented in the Discipline theme engage with and love creating order. Discipline creates strong avenues and channels to work in, so a myriad of options don't become overwhelming. Discipline creates a structure and order so people can get where they need to go. People with high Discipline enjoy routine and structure and the order that they create. Discipline is an internal way of creating order so you can get going and move forward. People with strong Discipline love things that are organized and orderly. They meet deadlines. Discipline can efficiently manage limited resources. Discipline enjoys what is real, pragmatic and  available. Discipline has a radar for structure, clean channels and working in an orderly fashion. 

Raw Discipline sounds like "I need" when chaos is present, whereas mature Discipline would say, "I create order." Raw Discipline is about the process and mature Discipline is about performance. Raw Discipline is inflexible and set in its ways, while mature Discipline is anticipatory.
