Fishbein & Ajzen ()Blair H. Sheppard, Jon Hartwick, Paul R. Two meta-analyses were conducted to Investigate the effectiveness of the Fishbein and Ajzen model in research to date. Strong overall evidence for the predictive utility of the model was found. Although numerous instances were identified in which researchers overstepped the boundary conditions initially proposed for the model, the predictive utility remained strong across conditions. However, three variables were proposed and found to moderate the effectiveness of the model.

Today, in part because of the work done by Ajzen and Fishbein, and their colleagues, the core of their theory seems obvious—individuals are more likely to perform the behaviours that they feel positive toward and intend to perform. Many models of behaviour share the assumption that behaviour results from a reasoned process, where individuals consider their options, evaluate the consequences and make decisions about how to act. Clearly, as the evidence presented by Morgan and Bachrach in this volume attests, the Theory of Planned Behaviour is the most widely used social science framework of this type Fishbein and Ajzen However, the core of the theory remains the same—general attitudes, beliefs and preferences related to a behaviour predict intentions, and intentions predict behaviour. No doubt due to its popularity, many other extensions to the TPB have been suggested e. There is no doubt that a substantial fraction of births results from just such a process—a couple decides they want a baby, form the intention to behave accordingly, become pregnant and give birth.
