What drives us

SEC data trove advances need for transparency

Haptic instincts guide human desire to buy

Dr. Ryann Reynolds-McIlnay, assistant professor of marketing and merchandising management, investigates the effects of retail environment stimuli on shopper behavior. She's wired to notice shopper marketing, atmospherics and sensory marketing.

When most people find that their actions have resulted in an undesirable outcome, they tend to rethink their decisions. When narcissists face the same undesirable outcome, their refrains, according to Professor Satoris Howes, is “No one could have seen this coming!”
