Motivated Consumer Innovativeness: Concept, Measurement, and Validation

Functional, hedonic, social and cognitive motivations, which are incorporated in a new Motivated Consumer Innovativeness scale, underlie consumer innovativeness. These reliable and valid scale dimensions predict innovative purchase intentions better than traditional and recent innovativeness scales. Moreover, the scale disproves the consensus that age is always negatively related to innovativeness.
