The Effect of Nostalgic Consumption on the Activation of the Interdependent Self and Prosocial Behavior
This paper tests the idea that nostalgic consumption experiences can activate the interdependent self and promote prosocial behavior towards unknown others. Three experiments demonstrate empirical evidence to support this notion: nostalgic cookies and video clips (vs. non-nostalgic ones) render participants more interdependent, decrease interpersonal distance, and increase participants’ helping behavior.
