英文摘要 This research is directed with the intention of contributing towards the realm of

innovation and new technology diffusion, with a particular focus upon the individual

diffuser category adopters’ motivations for adopting a particular innovation. Rogers

initially defined the diffuser categories based upon a timeline in which each adopter

accepts and, ultimately, adopts a particular innovation relative to other adopters. The

motivations of a particular diffuser category to adopt, as defined throughout this

research, are based upon the constructs within various value creation theories, namely

stand-alone value, network externality value, epistemic value, social value, and

emotional value. Furthermore, in most instances these values have been linked with

the most relevant sub-values, aimed to further narrow the scope of the true motivation.

The ultimate aim of this research is to determine which of the perceived values prove

most significant in any particular diffuser category consumer’s decision to adopt, and

more critically, at which point in time, relative to other adopters, said consumer

decides to adopt.
