Indulging and Proud of It: Positive Emotional Responses to Reason-Based Luxury Consumption

We propose that consumers may feel pride (a positive self-conscious emotion) after indulging. Across three studies, we find that high self-control consumers experience pride when they have a reason to indulge in luxury consumption, which in turn explains their post-consumption satisfaction and willingness to use the product.
