Have you ever paid attention to your shopping habit? Do you do your research before going on that shopping spree? Do you just buy what catches your attention? Do you buy based on value or price? Your shopping habit says a lot about you, and knowing it would help keep you in check.
Are you on a mission when you go shopping? Do you only buy certain brands? Or are you the person who always gets the very best bargain? Here’s a list of shopping habits and what they say about you:
You follow a process when you shop until you find the perfect product at the right price. This suggests you’re great at long term planning. You won’t have to be told what needs to be done and you will stick to the rules. If there is a detailed project or a process to be followed, you’re the person for the job.
You’re in a hurry and you head to that online store or nearest supermarket with a purpose. If you want something, you buy it now whether or not you’ve got the ready cash. This suggests: you are on a mission and you haven’t got time for procrastinating. You are a person of action; a doer and probably quite pragmatic.
You know your favourite shops and that’s where you’ll be found. For you, it’ll be hard for anyone to find a different brand of phone or body cream asides the one you currently use. You are likely to be organised, follow a clear path, and could be good at research analysis. You enjoy weighing options.
You wouldn’t waste your time going to the shops. It’s quicker and easier shopping online. This suggests: you’re probably Gen Y and you’re IT savvy even if you don’t work in that field. You’re likely to be up with the play on the latest online trends for your business.
You never buy anything that’s not on your list. If shopping online, you like to put goods in your shopping cart and add to wish lists. This suggests: you’d be great at leading projects because you know how to create a list and follow it. You stick with a project from the beginning to the end and don’t deviate unnecessarily. List shoppers tend to be effective time managers.
You love shopping as a past-time. You go shopping on the weekends and spend your nights in front of the television whilst shopping online on your tablet. This suggests: you’re the ultimate multi-tasker and are likely to be good at customer service roles because you spend so much time as a customer.
