    • Attitudes are a learned predisposition
    • Attitudes have consistency
    • Attitudes occur within a situation
  • 4. Structural Models of Attitudes
    • Tri component Attitude Model
    • Multi attribute Attitude Model
    • The Trying-to-Consume Model
    • Attitude-toward-the-Ad Model
  • 5. A Simple Representation of the Tri component Attitude Model Conation Affect Cognition
  • 6. The Tricomponent Model
    • Cognitive Component
      • The knowledge and perceptions that are acquired by a combination of direct experience with the attitude object and related information from various sources.
    • Affective Component
      • A consumer’s emotions or feelings about a particular product or brand.
    • Conative Component
      • The likelihood or tendency that an individual will undertake a specific action or behave in a particular way with regard to the attitude object.
  • 7. Multiattribute Attitude Models Attitude models that examine the composition of consumer attitudes in terms of selected product attributes or beliefs.
  • 8. Multiattribute Attitude Models
    • The attitude-toward-object model
      • Attitude is function of evaluation of product-specific beliefs and evaluations
    • The attitude-toward-behavior model
      • Is the attitude toward behaving or acting with respect to an object, rather than the attitude toward the object itself
    • Theory-of-reasoned-action model
      • A comprehensive, integrative model of attitudes
  • 9. Attitude-Toward-Behavior Model A model that proposes that a consumer’s attitude toward a specific behavior is a function of how strongly he or she believes that the action will lead to a specific outcome (either favorable or unfavorable).
  • 10. Theory of Reasoned Action A comprehensive theory of the interrelationship among attitudes,intentions, and behavior.
  • 11. A Simplified Version of the Theory of Reasoned Action Beliefs that the behavior leads to certain outcomes Evaluation of the outcomes Beliefs that specific referents think I should or should not perform the behavior Motivation to comply with the specific referents Subjective norm Attitude toward the behavior Intention Behavior
  • 12. Theory of Trying to Consume An attitude theory designed to account for the many cases where the action or outcome is not certain but instead reflects the consumer’s attempt to consume (or purchase).
  • 13. Attitude-Toward-the-Ad Model A model that proposes that a consumer forms various feelings (affects) and judgments (cognitions) as the result of exposure to an advertisement, which, in turn, affect the consumer’s attitude toward the ad and attitude toward the brand.
  • 14. A Conception of the Relationship among Elements in an Attitude-Toward-the-Ad Model Exposure to an Ad Judgments about the Ad (Cognition) Beliefs about the Brand Attitude toward the Brand Attitude toward the Ad Feelings from the Ad (Affect)

    • How attitudes are learned
    • Sources of influence on attitude formation

    • Resolving Two Conflicting Attitudes
    • Altering Components of the Multi attribute Model
    • Changing Beliefs About Competitors’ Brands
  • 17. 1.Four Basic Attitude Functions
    • The Utilitarian Function
    • The Ego-defensive Function
    • The Value-expressive Function
    • The Knowledge Function
  • 18. Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM) A theory that suggests that a person’s level of involvement during message processing is a critical factor in determining which route to persuasion is likely to be effective.
  • 19. Why Might Behavior Precede Attitude Formation?
    • Cognitive Dissonance Theory
    • Attribution Theory
    Behave (Purchase) Form Attitude Form Attitude

  • 23. Self-Perception Theory A theory that suggests that consumers develop attitudes by reflecting on their own behavior.
  • 24. Defensive Attribution A theory that suggests consumers are likely to accept credit for successful outcomes (internal attribution) and to blame other persons or products for failure (external attribution).
