  • I'm all for emotional insight/buy-ology/psychographic thinking - but do you really believe 'Facts are irrelevant' and 'Consumer is not purchasing the physical product'? It's not an either/ or proposition. It's a mixture of both. The product has 2 meet it's core function for the 'associated feeling' to take root.
