The first one is anyone can do it, that he/she goes to the shops and buy what he/she needs, and at the same time if she/he doesn’t find the same thing buy something like it.

And at the same time is known as a pathological shopping, “anyone confuses if he/she don’t find the product, become sad or nervous”, Nagham said that. This type of shopping become when anyone goes to shops with psychological and compensatory motives and psychological disorders. For that when the compulsive purchase repeated many times it’s become an addiction.
