"The tricomponent attitude model states that attitudes are composed of three components, viz., a knowledge (cognitive) component, feeling and emotional (affect) component and the action (conative) component. - the knowledge or the cognitive component comprises the cognitive processes that lead to the formation of attitudes. In terms of marketing, the knowledge or cognitive component of the tricomponent model consists of consumers' knowledge about the products/service offering and the marketing mix. Consumer attitudes are formed on the basis of experiences as well as information received from personal (WOM, family, friends, peers etc.) as well as impersonal (marketer’s sources) sources of information that are retained in one’s memory. These get shaped by beliefs and opinions, where the consumer begins to perceive that the attitude object (person, situation or thing) possesses certain attributes and acts of behavior would lead to outcomes. The beliefs and opinions get repeatedly reinforced, and finally give rise to attitudes. This knowledge component leads to the emotional component. - the feeling or the affect component comprises the emotional component of attitudes. In fact, this is understood to be the attitude itself, as it depicts emotional states that are positive, neutral or negative. In marketing terms, it refers to a consumer’s feelings about a product/service offering and the marketing mix. It is evaluative in nature and would vary on a continuum as like or dislike, favorableness or unfavorableness. It manifests itself through feelings and resultant expressions like happiness, sadness, anger, surprise etc., and is indicative of consumer reaction towards the offering and the mix, which subsequently affects the purchase decision making as well as the purchase process. Such reactions and resultant states also get stored in our memory. Their retrieval, recall and recollection also impacts future decision making. - the behavioral or the conative component of attitudes depicts the outcome of an attitude. As attitudes are formed out of psychographic components, they cannot be seen. The first two components, knowledge and feeling are not expressive or illustrative of attitudes. It is only this third component through which attitudes can be inferred. The conative component, is indicative of the an individual’s tendency to behave [act or not to act (to buy or not to buy)] in a particular manner with respect to the attitude object (product/service offering, brand etc.).
