You can describe a design challenge on every piece of sketching paper which represents the problem you want to solve. There’s also some space for annotations.

Design for all buying modalities

The sketching paper helps you think from all buying modalities’ point of view. The paper contains a matrix in which you find an axis with a line from quick decision making to slow decision making and an axis with a line from rational decision making to emotional decision making. Every corner of the matrix represents a buying modility (personality trait).

Competitive

The competitive type is a someone who is a quick decision maker and bases his decision on factual information.

Spontaneous

The spontaneous type is a someone who is a quick decision maker and bases his decision on feelings.

Methodical

The methodical type is a someone who is a slow decision maker and bases his decision on factual information.

Humanistic

The humanistic type is a someone who is a slow decision maker and bases his decision on feelings.

No stereotyping

Interesting reads

Unfortunately these sources are available in Dutch only.

Don’t see a personality trait as a single individual. You’re never only a competitive person, only some people are in some situations more competitive than others are. It could very well be that someone is at some moment a more methodical type, but when this person realizes he’s in a hurry he can turn more competitive because his situation pushes him in that direction.

The above doesn’t really matter here, because during ideation we DO want to solve problems for all of the personality traits.
