What is it about?

This study aims to find empirical evidence between personality traits (authenticity, sense of uniqueness, need for uniqueness) and individual’s preference of scarce products. The results indicate that only authentic living has a statistically significant effect on individuals’ sense of uniqueness. This component of authenticity also has a significant effect on consumers’ desire for scarce and unique products through sense of uniqueness. Significant but moderate level direct effects of sense of uniqueness on purchase intentions and need for uniqueness on purchase intentions were observed in the analysis.
