There are 51 types of Kiwi: which one are you?

There are 51 types of Kiwi: which one are you? And who do you want as a neighbour?

Everyone is unique, but we have plenty of things in common with each other too. Roy Morgan Research has identified 51 distinct personas across seven broad communities—and pinpointed where they all live to make a complete map of which regions, cities, towns, suburbs (and even streets) are home to just which sorts of people.

Type any New Zealand address the new Helix Personas website to get a snapshot of the sort of person likely living there. The address can be your own, or that of a friend or relative, a place you’re thinking of buying and moving into—or maybe even a love interest.

A trendy Metrotech or hard-working Kiwi Achiever?
Enjoying a Leading Lifestyle or just Getting By?
In Golden Years or one of Today’s Families?

You do not need to sign up or provide any personal information to use this look-up tool or browse the full range of Personas.

Helix Personas is based on information collected from surveys with Kiwis covering things like household status and life stage, income, personal values, attitudes and behaviours.

• Who do you want as neighbours? Real ‘Humanitarians’ or people for whom ‘Status Matters’?
• Are you ‘New School Cool’ in Auckland’s Ponsonby or a ‘Savvy Self-Starter’ in Mount Eden?
• A ‘Domestic Juggler’ in Christchurch’s Hoon Hay or a ‘Career & Kids’ down the road in Cashmere?
• ‘Making Ends Meet’ in suburban Dunedin or enjoying ‘Financial Freedom’ overlooking Wellington Harbour?
• And where does the ‘Average Kiwi’ really live?
