Implementation Intentions As Self-Regulation Tool For Low- and High-Level Impulsive Buyers – a Behavioral and Neurophysiological Investigation

In postmodern societies impulsive buying is increasingly prevalent and can even transition to pathological compulsive buying with negative consequences on consumers’ well-being. This paper analyses the effectiveness of self-regulatory implementation intentions to control impulsive buying behavior. Results suggest that implementation intentions are a valuable tool for decreasing impulsive buying tendencies.
