Identifying consumers’ motivation would affect target market choice. While motivationenforces and directs consumer behavior, consumer personality also forms his choice behaviorregarding his goal achievement. Mayers-Brigges Type Indicator (MBTI), according to Jungtheory and psychological conflicts, indicates 16 personality types. In this research, we reviewhow different personality types influence the individuals’ attitude toward VAIO brand image,VAIO laptop knowledge/ involvement, and purchase intention. Also, we find out whetherthere is any relationship among these variables. Sample of 465 laptop buyers in Tehranmarkets has been investigated. Buyers’ personality types and their attitude toward variableshave been examined by MBTI and 7-point Likert researcher made questionnaires,respectively. The data has been analyzed by SPSS16 software.
