  11. 11. Irridex Model – Doxey 1975 <ul><li>Euphoria : Visitors are welcome and there is little planning </li></ul><ul><li>Apathy : Visitors are taken for granted and contact becomes more formal </li></ul><ul><li>Annoyance : Saturation is approached and the local people have misgivings. Planners attempt to control via increasing infrastructure rather than limiting growth </li></ul><ul><li>Antagonism Open expression of irritation and planning is remedial yet promotion is increased to offset the deteriorating reputation of the resort </li></ul>
