ANOVA and correlations analysis were used to test the hypothesis. The results supported the positive relationship between the levels of perceived interactivity, purchasing intentions, revising intentions, and attitudes toward the website as pervious studies. What is more, the results of this study indicated that consumers who have different personality perceived different levels of interactivity from Adidas' My Virtual Model website.
