Identity Representation in Customization

In this paper, we use three studies to demonstrate that consumers’ identity motives interact with factors under the firm’s control (i.e., design freedom) to influence product evaluations, product meaning, and satisfaction. All three studies engage participants in real customization tasks across three different product categories.
