Audience according to the way information is perceived

[ BLOG ]

Table of contents of the article

Have you ever wondered how you perceive information: visually, by ear or through emotions? Which senses are more important to you? What do you pay attention to first: the picture, the sound, the feeling? Which is easier and more interesting for you: watch a video, read a book or listen to audio? Which do you prefer more: movies, music or literature?

Each of us has the same senses: eyes - vision, ears - hearing, tongue - taste, nose - smell, skin - tactility. We all see the same thing, hear the same thing, feel the same thing, but perceive everything differently. You can bet that we all feel differently. But after all, everyone feels cold as cold, and heat as heat. It's just that someone likes the heat, and someone likes the cold. It turns out that it's not about the senses, but about how the brain perceives and processes information.

Ways of perceiving information

Sight, hearing, smell and touch play an important role in how we communicate, perceive the surrounding reality and interact with the world. It is important for someone to contemplate beauty, another needs to hear birds singing in the morning, a third needs to pet a cat. Since we are more willing to communicate with those who share our vision of the world, it is extremely important for anyone, not to mention marketers, to know the characteristics of visual, auditory and kinesthetic ways of perceiving information and to be able to identify them in others.

Why is this important? The fact is that understanding different types of information perception helps to convey your message, thought, or point of view to other people in a way that is familiar to them. If someone perceives information poorly, they may have chosen the wrong source. But once you change the way information is transmitted, everything falls into place.

For example, you complain that the instructions are written in such a complicated language that you have read them three times, but have not understood anything. But as soon as you watched the tutorial video, everything immediately became clear. However, if you give the same instruction to another person, they can figure it out the first time. Although the video may be incomprehensible and even uninteresting to him.
In general, our whole life consists of communication, and advertising is one of the ways the seller communicates with the buyer, the brand with the audience. If you learn to identify your audience by the way you perceive information, you will be able to interact with it effectively. And this is exactly what is needed in business promotion.

Visuals, Acoustics, Kinesthetes

Back in the 20s of the last century, psychologists came to the conclusion that most people perceive information in one of three ways: visual, acoustic, kinesthetic. As a result of analysis and research, they identified three types of people according to the way they perceive information: visuals, acoustics, kinesthetes. Of course, the classification was later expanded and refined. But these three types are taken as the basis.

They say about some people that they have a photographic memory: they looked at it once and remembered it for the rest of their lives. They say about others that they have very sensitive hearing: they can hear a mile away. About the third, they say that they feel, that is, they literally feel this world at their fingertips. Three different types of people require different approaches to communication and behavior. For successful interaction, you need to find the key to everyone.

Visuals

Visuals are dominated by vision. They better assimilate and remember the information presented in infographics, pictures, diagrams. Such an audience should be attracted through the interactive presentation of information. Stories, reels, shorts, memes, GIFs, live broadcasts, and gamification work great.
