Planning For Multiple Shopping Goals in the Marketplace

We develop and test a novel psychophysics theory of multiple-goal pursuit in the marketplace. Five shopper-tracking studies uncover unique motivational patterns as consumers tackle multiple sub-goals to complete a trip: a monotonic decrease in motivation for shoppers with a list, versus a nonmonotonic stuck-in-the-middle effect for shoppers without a list.
