Preview not available

Abstract

The nature of innovativeness, and its relationship to adoption, are explored in this article. It is argued that innovativeness should be conceptualized at a higher level of abstraction, and that explicit recognition should be given to the complex communication processes intervening between this construct and observable behavior.
