Traits

Traits contains a list of all traits in your Faraday account–both your first-party traits and those in the Faraday Identity Graph.

In Traits, you'll find a full list of traits available in your account. Here, you can search through the hundreds of responsibly-sourced, cookieless Faraday Identity Graph traits that can be used throughout Faraday–from creating cohorts and persona sets to analyzing in Explore, and more–in addition to any user-defined traits you create with your own data.
