It is also noted that the variables: personality, attitude and lifestyle can (to some extent) be adopted both in behavioral targeting and the psychographic, what differences them is the perspective adopted by the investigator or manager. Psychographic segmentation is affective, and when it is associated with other targeting criteria (geographic, behavioral, demographic, etc.), becomes an important tool for the correct implementation of the marketing mix (price, place, promotion and product) with the public - objective, i.e., it allows the company to position more consistently one’s product in the market.
