The real why and the hidden who: Fixing the weak links in how we measure personality

Brand N/A
Award category Grand Prix

Ogilvy and Kantar created a completely new instrument that decodes individuals at scale, using a series of proven behavioural science lenses.

The lenses decode personality traits, cultural cognition and cognitive styles to reveal the real 'why' and 'who' aspects of individuals – the drivers of, and barriers to, behaviour change.
