Chapter 9: Psychographics and Industrial Design


Chapter 9 of Life Style and Psychographics

The chapter provides a brief report with supportive evidence from a controlled experiment that psychographic research works. The study attempts to prove that a set of psychographic factors can communicate meaningful information to the industrial designer prior to beginning his efforts. This suggests the superiority of the question-answer marketing research approach versus designer’s question-asking approach.
