Individuals use half a dozen metaphors for each minute of speech. It is the key to human expression and as such a compelling research tool. Online Metaphor Elicitation has the ability to extract the non-verbal attitudes of a consumer by exploring both conscious and non-conscious associations with a given subject. It bypasses the conscious, language-oriented mind to uncover deeper thoughts and feelings about your brand, product or target market.
The result of the online metaphor elicitation process is 3 separate data points that can then be used to understand the consumer’s survey response from a more emotive, non-filtered perspective.
