Just as the other marketing mix components there are questions that must be answered in order to determine pricing for a product. One question is what Kudler’s price should be in comparison to its competitors.

The paper hypothesises that using imagineering in restaurants dramatically changes the balance of key operational principles for any type of restaurant and subsequently alters how the meal experience should be viewed. Key Words: Restaurant; Imagineering; Meal experience INTRODUCTION The perishability, intangibility, heterogeneity and inseparability (Zeithaml et al 1990) of the restaurant product and service make the meal experience unique to each and every customer. These characteristics make it very hard to quantify the concept of the meal experience from an operational or a customer satisfaction point of view.

The sociological perspective holds that free will is a myth. While we believe that we are making our own conscious decisions, each decision that we make is influenced by outside social sources, inside biological and chemical causes, or a combination of both. Big decisions such as the decision of whether to have children or to get married are formed based on a vast plethora of complex influences on our socialization. Even small decisions like what to order at a restaurant are not simply free choices. The way that your taste buds register certain flavors influences what kind of foods you will
William Sheldon's theory of Body Type and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator William Sheldon's theory of Body Type and Temperament, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, commonly known as the MBTI, are two theories whose main goal is to give an answer for the way that humans behave.

Is our mind the only responsible for human behavior?
