By Dr Leila Khouja Walker, Chief Product Officer

Our friends at Adapt – the hugely popular revision timetable app – have a very insightful group of about 100 ‘thought leader’ secondary student product testers on Instagram, who provide opinions and feedback on app features and ideas. They recently asked this group about Persona’s personality insights concept, to provide student views on Persona Insights. Here’s what they liked.
