Research in social psychology has extensively referenced and used Fishbein and Ajzen's theory of reasoned action to predict and understand motivational influences on behavior Recently Ajzen has proposed an extension of the theory by including perceptions of behavioral control as an additional predictor of intentions and behavior. The present research compared Ajzen's theory of planned behavior with the theory of reasoned action for 10 behaviors chosen to represent a range with respect to… Expand
Predicting Unethical Behavior: A Comparison of the Theory of Reasoned Action and the Theory of Planned Behavior
This study is a comparison of the validity of theory of reasoned action and theory of planned behavior as applied to the area of moral behavior (i.e., illegal copying of software) using structuralExpand
Theory of reasoned action vs. theory of planned behavior: Testing the suitability and sufficiency of a popular behavior model using hunting intentions
Abstract The theory of reasoned action (Ajzen & Fishbein, 1980) is being used increasingly in natural resources research related to human attitudes and behavior. We tested whether the theory ofExpand
A comparison of three models of attitude-behavior relationships in the studying behavior domain
The theory of reasoned action (TRA; Fishbein & Ajzen, 1975), the theory of planned behavior (TPB; Ajzen, 1985) and the theory of self-regulation (TSR; Bagozzi, 1992) were applied to ItalianExpand
Ethical Intentions and the Theories of Reasoned Action and Planned Behavior1
This study compares the explanatory power of Fishbein and Ajzen's (1991) theory of reasoned action, Ajzen's (1975) theory of planned behavior, and a modified version of the theory of plannedExpand
The theory of planned behavior
Research dealing with various aspects of* the theory of planned behavior (Ajzen, 1985, 1987) is reviewed, and some unresolved issues are discussed. In broad terms, the theory is found to be wellExpand

  • Research in nursing & health
  • 1995
TLDR
A critical review of the literature was conducted to assess the efficacy of using the Theory of Reasoned Action and the theory of Planned Behavior with respect to exercise, and evidence for the predictive utility of the theories was found. Expand
The proposition of a general version of the theory of planned behavior: Predicting ecological behavior
The present paper explores whether the theory of planned behavior (TPB) must abandon the notion that perceived behavioral control (PBC) has a direct influence on behavior. In a cross-sectional surveyExpand
Prototypes reflect normative perceptions: implications for the development of reasoned action theory
TLDR
Through confirmatory factor analysis, it is found that the prototype measures are normative pressure measures and when treated as a separate theoretical construct, prototype identity is not completely mediated by the proximal predictors of behavioral intention. Expand
Predicting Academic Misconduct Intentions and Behavior Using the Theory of Planned Behavior and Personality
The efficacy of Azjen's (1985, 1991) Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) for the prediction of cheating intentions and behaviors was examined in a sample of 241 business undergraduates. MediatedExpand

TLDR
The results indicated that Ajzen's theory of planned behavior in the domain of health performs very well for the explanation of intention and the efficiency of the theory varies between health-related behavior categories. Expand

TLDR
There appears to be general agreement among social psychologists that most human behavior is goal-directed (e. g., Heider, 1958 ; Lewin, 1951), and human social behavior can best be described as following along lines of more or less well-formulated plans. Expand
