Consumer Propensity to Resist (Cpr): Measurement and Validation

This paper offers a valid measure of Consumer Propensity to Resist (CPR). A qualitative research helps define the construct. Then, a scale is developed through four samples from 1,476 individuals. A final model confirms the links between Self-Affirmation and Self-Protection, their antecedents and effects on various buying behavior.
