If the company can grasp the purchase intention of consumer, they will know the future direction of the market and make profit. It is not discuss from internal message and external message in prior research. The so-called "internal message" is primarily individual buyers. "External message" is mainly external signs. It is a break away obeying parent’s generation. If the consumers’ economic capacity is enough, we will make decision by ourselves, but friends’ opinions still have a degree of influence. Therefore, the study decided to adopt self-construal (internal messages) and brand country-of-origin (external messages) as antecedent variables to explore purchase intention and simultaneously add parents and friends as moderators to discuss.

Experiment 2 adopted a 3 (Country-of-Origin: China, Taiwan or Korea)  2 (Self-Construal: Independent self-construal or Interdependent self-construal)  2 (Parents: Yes or Not), totally 337 valid questionnaires.
