Question description

1. Consumer Decision Making

What motivated you to  buy a product you’ve never used before? Using the Four Views of Consumer Decision Making, how does each type of personality go through the consumer decision process? Given the Model of Consumer Decision making, provide an example of how each view of the consumer (economic, passive, cognitive, and emotional) go through the steps in the process for a product purchase. How would the level of decision making affect the process? Do interest and price play a role at any level or step? Support your work through integration and leverage of the readings and constructs.
