There were a few researchers who have investigated the relationship between brand and the consumer's behaviour.
Later, dolich (1969) adopted human personality scales in order to study the product personalities of four products (beer, cigarettes, bar soap and toothpaste) and their relationships between consumers' actual and (1997) realized this limitation and he developed the brand personality scale (bps) model.Since then, the brand personality dimensions have been applied to various setting across different cultures to gauge consumers' symbolic consumption and their effects on behaviour (aaker, benet-martinez and garolera 2001, supphellen and gronhaug 2003).
Because of this reason consumers expect the brand to give them positive and protective roles in their lives.
