The authors found a negative relationship between irritation and attitudes towards mobile advertising. It also was noted that there is a positive relationship between personal innovativeness and attitudes towards mobile advertising. Additionally, the study found that personal innovativeness moderates the relationship between irritation and attitudes towards mobile advertising.
