- attitude towards change; social influence-based theory; individual difference-based theory; information-based theory.
The purpose of this article is to describe the various theories used in research on attitudes to change. Theoretical framework that has been used could be grouped into three perspectives, which are based on social influence, individual differences, and information. Based on literature review in that three perspectives, there is a theoretical gap in the perspective of information, however it is not in the first two. Accordingly, authors recommend the use of information perspectives, particularly focus on theory of information framing when to do attitude research. This needs to be done not only to clarify the effect of information factors on attitudes towards change, but also to develop research based on information theory in the future.
