Shopping addiction is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy at Black Friday sales or at mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers, or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women, though, because when you consider the purchases of gadgets, large-screen TVs, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping merely a purchase of specific merchandise while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

Masters Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 3.5, , language: English, abstract: Currently all the businesses are facing cut throat competition and companies and retailers are using different components of store atmospherics to attract the customers and to get competitive edge in the market by differentiating themselves from their competitors and consequently to be successful in the market. Current research is among very few on the components of store atmospherics and Impulse Buying in Pakistan. It will be helpful for producers, retailers and marketers by providing them roadmap to develop different strategies to increase sales and ultimately getting a larger market share by influencing buying decision making process of the consumers. Quantitative research approach has been used in this study and data has been collected through survey research method in which adapted questionnaire is used as instrument of survey. The sample size was 600 consisting of different cities (Islamabad, Lahore, Okara, Sahiwal, Pakpattan, Arifwala and Multan). Research data has been analyzed by applying descriptive statistical techniques through SPSS software. Descriptive statistics, pie graphs, scatter diagram, correlation and linear regressions tests have been applied to draw the results of the study. Results of the study have shown that the questionnaire is reliable to measure the constructs. Correlation values show that store layout, point of purchase displays, atmospherics and human factors have positive moderate correlation with impulse buying behavior. The results of regression analysis have shown that store layout, point of purchase displays, atmospherics and human factors have significant impact on impulse buying behavior. The study has some limitations as well; data has been collected through adapted questionnaire although there are other instruments as well to measure the constructs. In this study mere quantitative research approach has been used, while a mixed method approach can also be used to measure the constructs. The study has been conducted in only seven cities of Pakistan therefore it will be difficult to generalize the results of the study.

Divided into two sections, ´´Subliminal Affirmations´´ and ´´Laws of Attraction Guide´´, this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner.

A groundbreaking exploration of how cyberspace is changing the way we think, feel, and behave. Mary Aiken is the world´s leading expert in forensic cyberpsychology - a discipline that combines psychology, criminology, and technology to investigate the intersection where technology and human behavior meet. In this, her first book, Aiken has created a starting point for all future conversations about how the Internet is shaping development and behavior, societal norms and values, children, safety, security, and our perception of the world. Cyberspace is an environment full of surveillance, but who is looking out for us? The Cyber Effect offers a fascinating and chilling look at a future we can still do something about. Drawing on her own research and extensive experience with law enforcement, Mary Aiken covers a wide range of subjects, from the impact of screens on the developing child to the explosion of teen sexting and the acceleration of compulsive and addictive behaviors online (gaming, shopping, pornography). She examines the escalation of cyberchondria (anxiety produced by self-diagnosing online), cyberstalking, and organized cybercrime in the deep web. Aiken provides surprising statistics and incredible but true case studies of hidden trends that are shaping our culture and raising troubling questions about where the digital revolution is taking us. The Cyber Effect will upend your assumptions about your online life and forever change the way you think about the technology you, your friends, and your family use. Listeners will gain a new understanding of the rapid change taking shape around us and come away with critical tools to become part of this very necessary conversation. 1. Language: English.
