  • PSYCHOLOGICAL INFLUENCES ON CONSUMER BEHAVIOR Concepts such as motivation and personality; perception; learning; values, beliefs and attitudes; and lifestyle are useful for interpreting buying processes and directing marketing efforts.
  • Motivation Motivation is the energizing force that causes behaviour that satisfies a need. An individual consumer may purchase an item that they believe will further the own goals or will satisfy a need they have. For example, a shopper may stop at the mall food court because they are hungry, and may select a salad to eat because they believe it will help them achieve weight loss or a healthier lifestyle
  • Define Motivation  Motivation can be defined as the processes that account for an individual’s intensity, direction, and persistence of effort toward attaining a goal.  The following are the three key elements in this definitions : Key Elements 1. Intensity: how hard a person tries 2. Direction: toward beneficial goal 3. Persistence: how long a person tries
  • Consumer Motivation Motivation is an inner drive that reflects goal- directed arousal. In a consumer behaviour context, the result is a desire for a product, service, or experience. It is the drive to satisfy needs and wants, both physiological and psychological, through the purchase and use of products and services Five stages of the motivation process: Need Drive (force) Want or desire Goal (purpose) Behaviour(action)
  • Behavioural Models of Motivation Abraham Maslow’s “Need Hierarchy Theory”:
  • Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Self- actualization Esteem Belongingness Security PhysiologyFood Achievement Status Friendship Stability Job Friends Pension Base NEEDS General Examples Organizational Examples jobChallenging title at work plan salary
  • Types of Motivation  Positive Motivation(Financial and non Financial )  Negative motivation
  • The Dynamic Nature of Motivation  Needs are never fully satisfied  New needs emerge as old needs are satisfied  People who achieve their goals set new and higher goals for themselves
  • Arousal of Motives  The arousal of any particular set of needs at a specific moment in time may be caused by internal stimuli found in the individual’s physiological condition, by emotional or cognitive processes or by stimuli in outside environment.  Physiological arousal  Emotional arousal  Cognitive arousal  Environmental arousal
  • Perception  Perception is the process through which the information from outside environment is selected, received, organized and interpreted to make it meaningful to us.  According to S.P. Robbins, “Perception may be defined as a process by which individuals organize and interpret their sensory impressions in order to give meaning to their environment.”
  • Factors that influence perception: 1) Factors in the perceiver Attitudes Motives Interests Experience Expectations 2) Factors in the situation Time Work setting Social setting 3)Factors in the target Novelty (innovation) Sounds Size Background Proximity(closeness) Similarity
  • Learning Define Learning Learning may be defined as “The process of acquiring the ability to respond adequately to a situation which may or may not have been previously encountered, the favourable modification of response tendencies consequent upon previous experience; the process of acquiring insight into situation.” According to E.R.Hilgar, “Learning is a relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs as a result of prior experience.”
  • Leaning theories  Classical conditioning-(e.g. Dog , bell, time,etc)  Operant conditioning ((e.g. if you insert a coin in coffee machine you can get coffee. You leant from past experience how to cause the environment to deliver a cup of coffee)  Social conditioning (the ability of individual by observing others. i.e. can leant from parents, peers, boss, etc.people gain elf confident when someone else do it than are simply told what to do)  Cognitive conditioning(people draw on their experience and use past learning as the basis for present experience)
  • What are the various Elements of Learning  Motivation  Cues(indicator e.g.“ first step is the best step” and base on time it varies)  Response(choice of behaviour)  Reinforcement(consequence i.e. support,back up)) How learning Influences on Consumer Behavior.  Recognition and Recall  Cognitive Responses to Advertising  Attitudinal and Behavioural Measures of Brand Loyalty
  • Define Personality  The term Personality has been derived from Latin word “Personare” which means ‘to speak through’.  Personality is an individual’s characteristics response tendencies across similar situations.  According to Schiffman and Kanuk, “Personality can be defined as those inner psychological characteristics that both determine and reflect how a person responds to his or her environment.”
  • The Nature of Personality  Impact (force)Behaviours and Actions  Psychological and physiological(shaped by environment i.e. life experience and our parents genetic)  Personality reflects Individual Differences  Personality is consistent(steady) and enduring(long term)  Personality can change

  • Theories of Personality 1) Type (individual are categorised depending on their physical characteristics e.g. age) 2)Trait(factor analysis and rating scale used, he will be describe himself about his attitude, feeling , etc and asked with other person to evaluate from what he knows about individual) 3)Psychoanalytic (comprises id, ego and super ego) (a hunger man can (relax) experience partial gratification of his hunger by imagining a delicious meal- id, ego- man cannot satisfy his hunger by eating image, reality must considered, super ego- judge whether an action is right or Wrong according to the standard of society, 4) Social learning (stresses on the change of behaviour through learning from several sources i.e. the person action in given situation according to specific characteristics of situation) 5) Humanistic (behaviour depends on how an individual perceives the world)
  • ATTITUDE Definition Attitude is defined as a mental, emotional or rational predisposition with regard to a fact, state, person or an object.
