Well, it turns out what we offered then we still offer now, then it was free, now it's for pay (just letting you know ahead of time, although we believe it's pretty inexpensive) -- You can learn how the world (or select parts of it) thinks now for only US$39.99/run.
Ten years ago nobody was interested. Now they are. Perhaps there's more interest in learning how the world -- or at least different regions of it -- think now. Or at least how the world was thinking in the last twenty-four hours (because that's how often the tool updates).
In any case, you can go to the NextStage SampleMatch World Report and see how people are thinking in different countries that we're monitoring. NextStage's SampleMatch Tool uses data collected by NextStage OnSite to determine how people are thinking, how they'll behave and what motivates them. As I write this, these tools are reporting on more than 70 countries.
One fascinating thing we've discovered so far is that the majority of people around the world use what we call a V14 Personality Style (you can learn more about these designations in the links below). That V14 hasn't changed in the time we've been betaing the tool (about three months). What does change fairly regularly are the secondary, tertiary and less used Personality Styles. The secondary and tertiary change at least once a week, and the Personality Styles representing lesser populations shift little.
It is an oddity.
You can also get an idea of how many individual locations NextStage's SampleMatch Tool is analyzing on NextStage SampleMatch's About page. Right now, for example, we're providing results for Albania through Ho Chi Minh City, Lam Dong, Viet Nam.
NextStage SampleMatch's function is to provide marketing and creative people actionable design data by region. Imagine yourself sitting in a mall watching people walking past and making highly accurate decisions about how each person shops, decides what to buy, what kinds of things trigger their interest, etc., and you get an idea of how NextStage's SampleMatch works.
And before I forget, the information can also be provided by zip/postal code, gender, age and industry, if desired.
So go take a look and let us know what you think.
