- Perceived by Others - How I think I am perceived by others
Others will perceive me as wealthy, accepted, accomplished, and desired -OR- savvy, responsible, and practical
- Function/Use - Serves a purpose, meets a need
This will saves time, get from point A to B, replace something that broke, functional item, etc.
- How I feel - This will make ME feel great
I must be wealthy because I bought this expensive house, car, clothes, vacations, etc. (self-validation). I will feel happier, I've earned this, this is something people in my economic class has so I need it too.
