Information-Searching Task Type and Searching Effort: the Mediating Role of Self-Efficacy
This article examines information searching behavior under different searching tasks (general vs. specific) and the mechanism. Two experiments demonstrate that consumers make more efforts under general searching task than under specific searching task which is mediated by self-efficacy. We also explore this effect under different scenarios (material vs. experiential product).
