Hunting For The Missing Piece: What Motivates People To Collect Items?

But, what motivates people to collect? What keeps them hooked on an endless quest for the missing piece? We shed light on this unique and fascinating behavior that affects so many ordinary consumers. Join the talk to discover more!
