The Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) has received considerable attention in the literature. The present study is a quantitative integration and review of that research. From a database of 185 independent studies published up to the end of 1997, the TPB accounted for 27% and 39% of the variance in behaviour and intention, respectively. The perceived behavioural control (PBC) construct accounted for significant amounts of variance in intention and behaviour, independent of theory of reasoned… 

Application of the theory of planned behaviour to career choice: The role of an improved measure of emotion

Adherents of the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) propose that intention to perform behaviour can be predicted by attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behavioural control. Recent studies,

Descriptive norms as an additional predictor in the theory of planned behaviour: A meta-analysis

This study used meta-analysis: (a) to quantify the relationship between descriptive norms and intentions, and (b) to determine the increment in variance attributable to descriptive norms after

Improving research results with the theory of planned behaviour

The Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) is a well known theory addressing the relationship between attitude and behaviour. However, research using this theory does not always produce the expected high

Predicting behaviour from perceived behavioural control: tests of the accuracy assumption of the theory of planned behaviour.

A proxy measure of actual control (PMAC) was developed and validated in order to test the assumption that the accuracy of perceived behavioural control determines the strength of the PBC-behaviour relationship.

A multicomponent model of the theory of planned behaviour.

Results supported the discriminant validity in the measurement domains of all TPB components, however, Predictive validity of exercise behaviour for these components was only evident for attitude and PBC components.

Prediction of behaviour vs. prediction of behaviour change: The role of motivational moderators in the theory of planned behaviour.

Research has identified moderating variables of the cognition–behaviour relationship in the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB). These include intention certainty, affective–cognitive congruence of

Integration of Status Consumption and Theory of Planned Behavior: A Conceptual Framework

The theory of planned behavior (TPB) is a popular theory to predict human behavior in many social science studies, consumer behaviour being no exception. The TPB in its simplest form postulates that

A meta-analysis investigated the effects of perceived injunctive (IN) and descriptive (DN) norms on behaviour (BEH) within the theory of planned behaviour (TPB) in a sample of 196 studies, implying that IN and DN are conceptually different constructs.

Self-identity and the theory of planned behaviour: between- and within-participants analyses.

Preliminary evidence is provided to support the effect of individual differences in self-identity on the formation of intentions to act as well as measures of generalized self-concept and social physique anxiety for dieting behaviour that moderated the self- identity-intention relationship.

An extended version of the theory of planned behaviour: the role of self-efficacy and past behaviour in predicting the physical activity of Chinese adolescents

Using an extended theory of planned behaviour (TPB), which incorporated additional self-efficacy and past behaviour, to predict the intention to engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and the MVPA level of Chinese adolescents showed moderate support.

Self-identity significantly predicted behavioural intention, a relationship that was not dependent on the extent to which the behaviour had been performed in the past, and the relationship between perceived behavioural control and intention was strongest for low identifiers.
