Can you spend hours and hours at the mall, just looking around the store and hardly making any purchase? Or when you go to the mall, you try your best to leave as quickly as possible?
Whether we like it or not, we all have to shop at some point. But do you know what’s your shopping personality?
We are listing down the type of shoppers, so you can identify which personality fits you the most.
The Bargain Shopper
Coupons, discount books, online codes, and store sales. The Bargain Shopper hunts down exciting deals with the intensity of a rabid raccoon ransacking an unguarded trashcan. And that’s a good thing. If there’s one thing you can count on with the Bargain Shopper, it’s the fact that they’ll absolutely find the lowest price in town, on the internet or anywhere in the whole world.
You want to buy a new 42-inch LCD TV. So what do you do? Do you buy a few consumer magazines or visit 14 different websites that offer television reviews? If you are the researcher, you are most likely to spend five months researching every brand and every model of 42-inch LCD televisions. Based on that information, you might make a decision. Or you might wait until a new product is launched… because, once you make the purchase, you can’t research on TVs anymore. And what kind of a life is that?
The Impulse Buyer
Oh, that sure is a pretty lamp over there. I exactly know where that lamp would look great! On the table next to my bed. Such a pretty lamp. Sure, it’s for Rs. 15,000, but see, it is useful too, I can use this lamp while reading a book, and when will I ever see such a beautiful lamp again? So you know what to do . . . buy it. Right now! This will be the best, most sensible purchase I’ve ever made. Until tomorrow, when you wake up and realize you have to pay a debt of Rs 1,00,000 and just spent Rs. 15,000 on a lamp.
To the negotiator, no price is a final price. Everything is up for negotiation. “That’s not good enough!” is the Negotiator’s mantra. Their sole purpose in life is to win the battle with every single salesperson they encounter. Or at least it seems that way because they approach every negotiation like Drago fighting Rocky in Rocky IV. “I will break you,” he said. But, well, he lost the fight, so that’s a terrible example.
You have a specific brand or store for every product or accessory you buy. Like, when speaking of denims, maybe you cannot purchase it from anywhere but Levis. You may try other stores, but you eventually come back to the same brand. Your set of you nail polish comes from Colorbar, your handbags are from Baggit, and every dress in your wardrobe is from Zara. A loyalist cannot even think of cheating on their favorite brands.
The Man on a Mission
You have one objective: to go to the store and buy a new computer monitor. Your record for driving to the mall, buying one item, and returning home is 27 minutes and 42 seconds. Each time you go to the mall, your goal is to break that record. When the Man on a Mission shops, he’s like a laser-guided missile seeking out a target to destroy. If you’re shopping alongside him, please don’t stop to browse the shoe section. That’s a terrible, terrible mistake.
