Impact of Materialistic Values on Impulsive and Compulsive Consumption via Status Consumption: A Research on Young Consumers
The impulsive and compulsive consumption that consumers cannot control has become a threat to individuals and countries due to their negative economic and social consequences. Materialism and status consumption are important negative personality traits underlying various consumers' behaviors. In this research, it is aimed to explore the impact of materialistic values and status consumption on impulsive and compulsive consumption. Cluster sampling method was chosen as sampling method. Students aged 17 to 24 year-olds were selected and 589 usable completed questionnaires were received by using self-completion survey method. According to the results of the model, materialistic values has significant and positive direct impact on status, impulsive and compulsive consumption respectively. In research model, since impact of status consumption on compulsive consumption is not significant, materialistic values have impact on compulsive consumption via status and impulsive consumption.
