    Default Brands and Personality Type? Any example?

    Do you think that some brands appeal to one or some personality type?
    for example car brands, or Apple...

    Do you have in mind some love affair? Example: INFP-Apple

    Have you noticed in your surroundings? a certain brand that appeals to a certain personality type?

    Please explain.

    A bit off topic, but I think the way Apple (a giant corporation) has duped people into thinking they're so much more free-spirited, cool and counter-culture than Microsoft (another giant corporation) etc is extremely ingenious, totally bogus, and rather evil.

    They're certainly a lot more creative, if anything. But hey, they're the underdog, people like the underdog.

    Supposedly microsoft's actions have really sucked over the years so it's comparing a company that isn't a bastard (apple) to a company that is (microsoft).

    I just think it's funny because say what you will, Apple is still a giant corporate machine, and a lot of people seem to have lost sight of that. Their marketing is very clever, I guess. I suppose they were the underdog once but they certainly no longer are, or not much of one!

    Apple markets themselves very well. They give the impression that they're an underdog/hip company that goes against the man. But as far as successful...in perspective MS sold more Windows 7 OSs in a month than the number of people that even use Mac OSX.

    I just don't like their company development philosophy. They have supreme control over their software and hardware. Their stance hinders 3rd party developer support in return for a highly reliable, stable, intuitive and consistent end user experience. Which is why I tend to like Google and MS more as companies. However, they're a phenomenal brand in terms of how they can shape markets with their products. I usually recommend Apple products to those who can afford them and who don't really have an interest in technology, but just use it for utility.

    I met quite a few INTPs (and a slew of ISTJs and other ITs im sure) in computer engineering/science whose priorities you seem to share. I understand the appeal of mass 3rd party developer support, but I must say I'm a fan of the work of Mac-only 3rd party developers. Apart from a couple of killer apps nothing would turn me away from their often superiorly designed software.
