User Centered Design – putting together the Puzzle

Puzzles, personality and marketing

Yesteryear’s primary marketing technique was blasting a single message on paper to a general audience of prospects. Handed down as inviolable law, marketers unquestioningly used it … as they walked barefoot uphill five miles each way to school in blinding snowstorms.

In the 1920s that Carl Jung and William Moulton Marston observed the strong connection between people’s personality traits with their thoughts and behavior.

Fast forward another few decades and companies started applying this behavioral knowledge to profit-making businesses. Marketers began experimenting with separating their target markets according to their primary personality style, including typical purchasing behavior. Not surprisingly, segmenting helped purchasing percentages rise dramatically.
