This paper aims to study on the basis of previous literature, using the theory of planned behavior to understand and predict consumers environment boycott behavior from green consumption perspective. This paper adopts empirical research method and finds that consumers sense of environment protection, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control have significantly positive effects on making green purchase decisions and taking boycott behavior intention into action, while consumers perceived cost have a significantly negative effect on the intention of boycott behavior. This research is also a creative application of the theory of planned behavior.

Research aims: This study attempts to analyze the young generations' perceptive variables in Indonesia, namely millennial (generation Y) and generation Z toward stock investment intention preliminarily.Design/Methodology/Approach: This study posits perceptive variables from the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) with various demographic characteristics as tablemoderating variables. This study utilized a structured online questionnaire survey to collect 64 samples and being analyzed by PLS-SEM. The group differences that being examined were investigated with multi-group analysis.Research findings: The findings from this study revealed that not all perceptive variables from TPB were significant on young Indonesian generations toward stock investment intention; only attitudes toward behavior had a significant effect. These findings were contrary to prior literature. Besides, Indonesia's young generations’ education level also played a moderating role in influencing stock investment intention. Theoretical contribution/Originality: This preliminary study provides potential facts regarding the applicability of the Theory of Planned Behavior in the emerging market (Indonesia) in stock investment intention.Practitioner/Policy implication: The practical contribution would be insights for policymaker and Securities Firms regarding young generations’ perspective on stock investment and what possible actions in terms of policies, programs, and campaigns that need to be done to increase the growth of investors’ number in Indonesia. For public firms, the insights could be useful in constructing sustainability strategies in terms of funding source from the firm’s stock.Research limitation/Implication: The sample used for this preliminary study was restricted to young generations divided into generation Y and Z from Indonesia only. This study focused on the fundamental implementation of TPB only; hence, the individual behavioral intention analysis was limited to TPB proxies. Since an online survey using a questionnaire was used to collect the data, the findings were limited and depending on the respondents’ answers regarding the issue.

Abstract. Faking has been a concern in selection research for many years. Many studies have examined faking in questionnaires while far less is known about faking in selection exercises with higher fidelity. This study applies the theory of planned behavior (TPB; Ajzen, 1991 ) to low- (interviews) and high-fidelity (role play, group discussion) exercises, testing whether the TPB predicts reported faking behavior. Data from a mock selection procedure suggests that candidates do report to fake in low- and high-fidelity exercises. Additionally, the TPB showed good predictive validity for faking in a low-fidelity exercise, yet not for faking in high-fidelity exercises.

Abstract. Heart transplantation is the treatment of choice for children with end-stage heart disease. Coronary artery vasculopathy is, however, a significant morbidity and leading cause of late graft loss, and hyperlipidemia a risk factor for its development. Improving diet in this population could have important benefits for patients. We wanted to understand what influences decisions about food intake in this patient group. Dietary intentions and behavior were examined using a questionnaire based on the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) with 67 children who had undergone heart transplantation at least 12 months previously. The TPB model was significant for both healthy and unhealthy dietary behaviors, explaining 55% and 38% of the variance, respectively. Ten percent of children reported not eating any fruit and/or vegetables in the previous week and only 29% reported eating fruit and/or vegetables every day. The Theory of Planned Behavior provides a framework for explaining some specific dietary behaviors related to individual food groups in children who have undergone heart transplantation. These preliminary data support using this approach to inform the development of interventions to improve fruit and vegetable consumption but the approach may be less useful for explaining and developing interventions to reduce the consumption of unhealthy foods.
