Men Likely to Research a Purchase, Not Ask for Advice

Women quicker to gather opinions from others, survey finds

FRIDAY, Jan. 29 (HealthDay News) -- When lost on the roadway, men have a reputation for being less likely than women to ask for directions, and new research suggests that the same behavior may hold true when men go shopping.

They need to be aware that in addition to objective product characteristics, customers' purchasing decisions may be driven by less obvious factors, such as those investigated in this study-- self-assessed knowledge, purchase confidence, and the purchase situation," Barber said in a university news release.

The findings are published in the January issue of the Journal of Consu
