iceberg principle

Quick Reference

A psychological concept that holds that, similar to the iceberg being 90% beneath the surface of the water, innate human desire is similarly hidden in the subconscious. These desires are not normally yielded by traditional marketing surveys and research, or even observation of current patterns. Therefore, marketers are always alert to the latent desires of consumers, whose deepest desires are unfulfilled.
