          Meyers-Briggs Personality

      "You psychologists focus on what's wrong with
       people. The MBTI is about
    what's right with people.
    We must not hurt the MBTI by making
    it look like your other clinical

         Consumer Values

From Roper Starches article in American
  Demographics, October 2000 named Re-
 Mapping the World of Consumers
           Consumer Values

   Creative     Challenge my mind, broaden my horizons

   Fun Seeker   Entertain me with fun, friends, and fantasy

   Intimate     Help me relax and enjoy my life

   Devout       Respect me and my family

   Altruist     Enrich me so I can contribute to the world

   Striver      Just cut to the chase, don’t waste my time
               Our Survey
We decided we wanted to do a correlation study
 between the Meyers-Briggs Personality types
 and the Consumer Value types. We surveyed 24
 people from the BYU-Hawaii campus from many
 different countries. The survey contained 30
 questions relating to consumer values. We took
 these results and compared them to each of the
 interviewed people’s MBTI results.
                Our Results

   Perceiving people had a Creatives
   Perceiving people had a Fun Seeker
   Thinking people had a Strivers tendency
Creatives are intellectual and curious people. They
  take an active roll in life. They like to exercise
  both their bodies and brains, through
  participation in everything from sports to
  culture. They are enthusiastic about technology
  and optimistic about life. They like to experience
  life to the fullest. They prefer time over money
  to pursue their many interests.
     Survey Results




Perceiving people have about a 15% more
  likelihood of having Creative Tendencies.

For example, if you were an advertiser trying to
  reach perceivers, you could do the following:
Make and end cap display for spontaneous
  shoppers. The display should be eye-catching
  and interesting. It should have some depth and
  not just “eye candy”.
                Fun Seekers
Fun Seekers like to pleasure their senses. They
  experience through touch, smell, taste, sight,
  and sound. They play with life. They are into
  music, food, sports, and watching videos. They
  would rather go out than stay in. They would
  rather be with friends than family. Like
  Creatives, they are interested in technology, but
  only so they can play harder. They focus on
  external appearances and material things.
     Survey Results

       Fun Seekers
Perceiving people have about a 15% more
  likelihood of having Fun Seeker tendencies.

For example, if you wanted to sell the convertible,
  Volkswagen Beatle to a Perceiver, it should have
  lots of sensory input and appeal to their sense of
  appearance and need for material things.
Strivers are everything that the other 5 groups are not.
   They care most about: ambition, power, wealth, and
   status. They have no concept of leisure time. They have
   no time to play; they are too busy getting ahead. They
   like to work late, come home and watch the news, then
   check the Internet for stock tips. Strivers haven't made
   it--they are not an affluent group. But they want to get
   there, and they are serious about it. When they do
  make time to shop, it's to enhance their public
  image with prestige brand names and flashy

        Str iv er s
Thinking people have about a 15% more
 likelihood of having Striver tendencies.

For example, if you wanted to sell a
  computer to a Thinker, you should not
  focus on the appearance and go straight
  to the data. Give them the facts and
  statistics of the machine.
   Small sample size
    We had a very small sample. For it to be more
     viable, we should have sampled at least twice
     as many people as we did.
   Skewed sampling pool
    Our statistics came from a very small area. To
     make the study more viable, we should
     extend our samples to a wider variety of
   Marketing to Perceivers as being Creatives
    and Fun Seekers
       Make the display fun and exciting while still
        giving the consumer something to think

   Marketing to Thinkers being Strivers
       Cut to chase and don’t worry about making it
        pretty, just practical.

This research shows that by combining two
 variables, we can focus on consumers with
 more accuracy and cater to their
