The empirical research finds that the greater the agreement between a destination's image and one's self-concept, the greater the tendency for the tourist to visit that place. Moreover, self-congruity loses this determining power when one has already visited a place. The findings further suggest that the greater the tourist's involvement in leisure tourism, the greater its power to predict destination choice.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47775||ISSN:||0160-7383||DOI:||10.1016/j.annals.2007.01.005||Source:||Annals of Tourism Research[ISSN 0160-7383],v. 34, p. 571-587|
