Pierre Chandon, Vicki G. Morwitz, & Werner J. Reinartz Do Intentions Really Predict Behavior? Self-Generated Validity Effects in Survey Research Studies of the relationship between purchase intentions and purchase behavior have ignored the possibility that the very act of measurement may inflate the association between intentions and behavior, a phenomenon called “self-generated validity.” In this research, the authors develop a latent model of the reactive effects of measurement that is applicable to intentions, attitude, or satisfaction data, and they show that this model can be estimated with a two-stage procedure. In the first stage, the authors use data from surveyed consumers to predict the presurvey latent purchase intentions of

(2012) stated that consumers consider many different criteria when they would like to buy products, such as price, quality, product features, brand and convenience.

Until recent history the study of consumer behavior was focused on generalized consumer decisions. With

Different models and theories have been adopted by many researchers to identify and examine the factors affecting online shopping intention or behaviours. “The Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB)” have been frequently used (So, et al., 2005, pp.1226-1228). Chiu, Chang, Cheng and Fang (2009, p.761) extended TAM “by introducing e-service quality dimensions, trust and enjoyment in the development of a theoretical model to study customers’ repurchase intentions of online shopping”. Similarly, Liao and Shi (2009, p.25) conducted the related research which is also based on the TAM framework, but combined it with “environmental and social constructs to elucidate consumers’ attitude and behavioural intention to use e-retailing”.
