The importance of studying compulsive buying stems, in part, from its nature as a negative aspect of consumer behavior. Specifically, exploring negative consumption phenomena could provide modified or new perspectives for the study of positive consumption behaviors. Moreover, research on negative facets of consumption is useful because it can potentially contribute to society's wellbeing, an important criterion for usefulness of any research. This research builds on earlier papers to propose a model of compulsivity antecedents. Gender, consumers' tendency to make unplanned purchases, and their tendency to buy product not on shopping lists, serve to predict compulsive tendencies in a sample of Indonesian consumers.
