Investigating the Effects of Consumer Innovativeness on Shape of Consideration Sets: Focusing on Comparison Between Consideration Sets of Innovators and Non-Innovators

ABSTRACT - This study investigated the effects of consumer innovativeness on brand consideration behavior. Specifically, we hypothesized that the shape (size and composition) of the consideration set is different between innovators and non-innovators: innovators’ consideration sets are smaller in size and include more homogenous brands than non-innovators’. As expected, experimental results support our hypotheses. Regarding the probability of consideration of two similar brands, our study implies that the simultaneous consideration phenomenon would also be observed at the consumer segment level.
