I. REVIEW LITERATURE
A. Sathish and A. Rajamohan(2002)
In their study Consumer behavior and buying behavior marketing, a general approach of consumer is taken. A consumer’s buying behavior is seen as the sum of his interactions with his environment. Buying behavior studies are a component of the broader behavioral concept called psychographics.” Harold W. Berkman and Christopher Gilson define buying behavior as “unified” patterns of behavior that both determine and are determined by consumption. The term “unified patterns of behavior” refers to behavior in its broadest sense.
Attitude formation and such internal subjective activities may not be observable, but they are behavior nonetheless. Buying behavior is an integrated system of a person’s attitudes, values, interests, opinions and his over behavior.
It is found during this study that “Consumer behavior remains a young discipline and most of the research now available has been generalized only during the past fifteen years or so. Innovations like the buying behavior concept and AIO research represent ways to maneuver the study of consumers faraway from isolated, often unrelated projects towards broader integrated systems and research techniques.
