Enjoy!: Compliance With Assertive Language in Hedonic Contexts
Assertive language, as in “Fly with us!”(US Airways) may elevate reactance and reduce compliance. We demonstrate that hedonic context alters communication expectations for more assertive and bold language, due to elevated good mood. This in turn enhances compliance with assertive language in hedonic, but not utilitarian, contexts.
