The U.S. brand personality: A Sino perspective
This research applies the personality metaphor to examine the U.S. brand personality in China. Results indicate that the U.S. brand personality is a multidimensional construct composed of three main dimensions: amicableness, resourcefulness, and self-centeredness. An overall view indicates that Chinese perceptions of the U.S. brand personality encompass a bipolar personality type where amicable and resourceful traits seemingly battle with self-centered personality traits. The emergent Brand Personality Scale is a significant predictor of Chinese people's behavioral intentions toward the U.S. Several implications are discussed and guidelines for further research are provided.
