1.3.2 Theory of Planned Behaviour (Ajzen, 1985) Theory of Planned Behaviour (Ajzen, 1985) proposes that behaviour is determined by behavioural intention, which in turn is a function of the individual’s attitude toward the act, the subjective norms and perceived behavioural control. ➢ Attitude consists of individual’s positive or negative feeling about performing a targeted behaviour (Ajzen and Fishbein, 1975). ➢ Subjective norm refers to the person 's perception that most people who are important to him or her think he should or should not perform the behavior in question (Ajzen and Fishbein, 1975). ➢ Perceived behavioural control is defined as the perceived ease or difficulty of performing the behaviour (Ajzen and Fishbein, 1975).

Theoretical Framework Several theoretical models have been developed and applied to study the acceptance and usage behavior of information technologies, but among the various theories proposed, most popular include Ajzen and Fishbein’s Theory of Reasoned Action and Theory of Planned Behavior; Davis’ Technology Acceptance Model, Venkatesh et al.’s Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology, and Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovation Model. Since 1950s, psychologists have been trying to connect the aspects of attitude and behavior to adoption. Fishbein’s work (1967) had identified the importance of conscious intention in contributing to the behavior, as well as the influence of the expected outcomes on the strength of intention. Fishbein added a social dimension to this cognitive perspective on behavior, by incorporating the influence of “subjective norms” or social pressures. He also distinguished between an individual’s attitude towards an “object” such as cancer, and their attitude towards performing an action relating to that object, such as having a mammogram, and demonstrated that attitude towards performing the action as a more effective predictor of actual behavior.
FAIR is an acronym for Facts, Access, Impacts and Respect. For Business Communication to be Ethical, it must pass the FAIR Test. The FAIR test helps you examine how well you have provided the facts how well you have granted access to your motives and how well you approach respect towards others and how it impacts them as well. According to Cardon (2013), and with the concept of the FAIR approach, it deals with how well and factual communication is, deals with how well facts are presented, how well presented the relevant facts are, and wants to know if any information is misleading. With access, it deals with how well or accessible are someones motives, reasoning, and information.
Secondly, use a variable response deadline; the participant can choose their own deadline, improving the accuracy across subjects. Finally, using the response latency approach within the GNAT test as its more reliable simply because each point is a continuous value. However, this is something that the IAT already has. Although, the GNAT can “effectively asses the strength of associate on between a concept and the poles of an attribute dimension” (Nosek and Banaji, 2001) the IAT is more reliable simply as it, “shows good reliability, which is a prerequisite for measuring individual differences,” (Rezaei,
He believed that our conception of ourselves as subjects depends on controlling or excluding whole classes of people who do not fit our enlightened category of "normal”. The same devices we use to understand and control these marginalised groups are also essential to understanding and controlling "normal” individuals. (Rabinow 1994:
It helps to explain one’s behaviour. It is defined as a tendency which characterizes an individual’s perspective about his self-independence and control by others (Corsini, 1999). It refers to the individuals’ perception regarding the underlying causes of different events that take place in their lives and also the ability to control over what happens to them. It is defined as a personality trait. Locus of Control is a personality dimension which helps to explain an individual’s trait and behaviours and refers to his/her very general, cross-situational belief about what determines the reinforcement in life (Haggbloom, Warnick, and Warnick,
They are often compelled to think, feel and behave differently. In contrast, the autonomous and controlled motivation can drive to demotivation which means absence of motivation. Deci and Ryan (2008), introduced the theoretical assumptions of intrinsic motivation based on the studies made by Bowlby in 1969, White in 1975, and DeCharms in 1984. The writers state that, to feel intrinsic motivated, he/she should be provided with autonomy, competence and sense of belonging as well as autonomy, competence, and sense of belonging are the main psychological needs for the orientation of development of self-determined motivation. Above given three needs are universal and they are found in people from different cultures.
The attribution theory is a method that can be used to assess how people perceive the behaviour of himself and other people. The attribution theory refers to how people generate causal explanations. In the book "The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations” Heider stated that all behaviour is considered to be determined by internal or external factors. In external attribution the causality is assigned to a factor, an agent or an external force. External factors go out of control.
Bandura (1977) identified vicarious experiences as the next most vigorous weight on one’s self-efficacy. Observing the successes of others similar to oneself provides positively to self-efficacy while the exact opposite is also true – observing the failures of others similar to oneself may lessen self-efficacy. Another source of self-efficacy is social or verbal persuasion. Social persuasion is the words of encouragement or moral support from others regarding one’s performance that may transform one’s perceptions of efficacy. Self-efficacy can be persuaded if told by others that they have what it takes to succeed.
TAM is a well-known model that helps to explain the adoption and use of technology (Sangle and Awasthi, 2010; Wessels and Drennan, 2010), as in our case mobile banking. Brought forward by Davis in 1989, it is based on Fishbein and Ajzen‟s theory of reasoned action (Sangle and Awasthi, 2011). Davis argues that the intention to use a particular technology is based on a persons behavioural intention which in turn is determined by two beliefs; perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness (Liu and Li, 2009; Sangle and Awasthi, 2011). However, Chong et al (2010) assert that using TAM solely does not sufficiently explain people‟s decision to adopt a technology and argue that TAM should rather be used as a base model which should be extended with
How do you integrate with these? It is called a subjective norm, subjective for the individual, the individuals are perceiving that most of your significant others want you to do this or doesn 't want you to. Now you have your own initial opinion about this action and you have the subjective norm (push to or push from), you have own attitude and subjective norm, how does you integrate two things, individuals do that by assigning
