Abstract

Female respondents (primarily 18-20 years old, divided equally between Pakistan and India) each evaluated 24 unique combinations of messages about a health and exercise club. The scale comprised two parts, a rating of feeling (describes me Yes vs No), and a rating of action (WOULD JOIN Yes vs No). The underlying experimental design, provided by Mind Genomics, allowed the ratings to be deconstructed into the pattern of 16 coefficient showing the contribution of each message element to the overall rating of ME. Clustering of the patterns of coefficients across the 16 elements for ‘escribes me’ and the 120 respondents revealed three mind-sets. The mind-sets are named according to the commonality of the strong-performing elements. MS 1 Focus on better living (n = 52), MS 2 Focus on feeling better about oneself (n = 32) MS3 Focus on negatives and problems (n = 36). Although it appears at a macro level that the rating of JOIN correlates with the rating of ME, a closer look by total and mind-sets suggests that the correlation is determined by a few elements. The granular level analysis by elements suggests different rules for ME vs for JOIN.
