Methodology
In a factorial survey, 1248 vignettes were rated by 208 students. The core concepts of social-cognitive health behaviour theories, technological affinity, and different situational and application-related characteristics were investigated.

Summary of findings
Intention to self-test was only predicted by the medical expertise of the tested person, while at home and a doctor's office were also associated with the application purpose of the test and the presence of an emotionally-supportive person. Perceived severity and outcome-expectancy significantly predicted intention to self-test. Technologically enthusiastic people had a greater intention to use a self-test.
