Meaningfulness in New Products: Conceptualization and Measurement
In this paper, we conceptualize meaningfulness in products and develop a measurement scale for assessing it. Drawing upon innovation adoption literature and consumer culture theory as well as four empirical studies, we propose that meaningfulness can be conceptualized as a four-dimensional construct: Novelty, usefulness, self-expression, and personal significance.
