Over and Over Again: Negative Emotions, Consumer Rumination and Post-Service Failure Outcomes

We investigate consumer rumination – recurrent thoughts about a discrepancy between one’s current position and a goal – as a psychological process through which consumers’ negative emotions influence service failure outcomes. The results of three studies show that rumination mediates effects of negative emotions on customer dissatisfaction, complaining and word-of-mouth intentions.
