In looking at what type of consumer I am, I would say that I am is based on needs. I make purchases based on the need to fulfill an activity or need. My decisions are based on what I have engaged with previously, sustainable practices, and cost. I feel having been in marketing I am probably more conscious of strategies and marketing efforts to get me to buy. Most of my purchases are because I need to replenish something or replace it. For example sneakers, I buy as I need to replace them and only own two pairs at a given time. I could care less about packaging or reviews, as I know what I like and am willing to try new brands or products. I am more concerned about a companies stance on livable wages or ethical business practices. After I complete the purchase I am satisfied and often have no remorse.
