Marken werden oft mit Menschen verglichen. Sie sollen über eine Persönlichkeit verfügen wie ein Mensch. Zur Erklärung der menschlichen Persönlichkeit wurde umfangreiche Forschung betrieben. Unter anderem wurden die „Big Five“ Persönlichkeitsdimensionen entwickelt und deren jeweilige Bedeutung in verschiedenen Studien beleuchtet. Mit Blick auf die Konsumentenforschung wurde kein vergleichbares Konzept entwickelt, welches die Markenpersönlichkeit erklärt. In dieser Studie wird erstmals der theoretische Rahmen zur Erklärung von Entstehung, Struktur, Messung und Wirkung der Markenpersönlichkeit entwickelt. Die Markenpersönlichkeit setzt sich aus fünf Dimensionen zusammen (Aufrichtigkeit, Erregung, Kompetenz, Kultiviertheit, Robustheit).
