Our innovative, proprietary approach to measuring emotions starts by tapping into a person's System 1 brain and applies Robert Plutchik's comprehensive, specific and actionable model of emotions.
By applying behavioral economic theory to go beyond the rational & access the System 1, non-conscious brain, this technique elicits, measures, and analyzes the latent emotions you really want to understand.
System 1 = fast, react, emotional. System 2 (traditional market research approaches) = transnational, thought, slow.
Takes 3 minutes to complete and yields a rich 200-variable dataset, made actionable through advanced analytic applications to link emotions with beliefs & behavior.
This tool has been used in several languages and the results hold across cultures because we are measuring basic human emotions.
We recently conducted a case study, one that was not client-specific, which allows us to explore the kind of insights that branded memory research delivers and the impact it can have on a brand’s strategy. The two-phase study looked at the casual-dining category (CDR). We conducted the emotional aspect in order to help brands create an actionable emotional strategy – one that captures latent emotions. The Rational Heart methodology is a timed, rapid-choice System 1 approach to an established system of emotional measurement developed by Robert Plutchick of the Einstein School of Medicine.

Using behavioral economics to radically improve clinical trial patient retention. By understanding their basic emotions around a stimulus, we can, through series of steps using Bayesian statistics, extrapolate to measure emotions as complex as hope.
We’ve proven in prior studies that we can predict when a trial participant is likely to drop-out or is at significant risk of dropping out of a trial, based on their hope score. This makes individualized retention plans possible because we can identify the at-risk participants.
Add an emotional component to your brand tracking studies. It's important to compare the emotional profile of your brand to that of competitors, the category, and customers vs. prospects.
Learn how our hope score can radically improve clinical trial retention by providing an early warning of drop-outs. Save time, money, and statistical power by lowering the drop-out rate.
