Tools to study of the buyer behaviour

1.       Surveys: this is the most common technique used in the studying of the buyer behaviour. It involves the use of questionnaires. Different scaling techniques like Likert and thrustone are used to measure consumer attitudes. The problem with survey methodology is that it gives to the market only conscious responses of the customer. Often these responses are guarded and may even be prejudiced.

2.       Projective techniques: to throw the customer off his or her conscious level and to get to know subconscious level responses, projective techniques like word association picture association and thematic appreciation tests (TAT) have been used.
