How Does Power Affect the Evaluations of Luxury Brand Extensions?

Powerful consumers preferred luxury brands with narrow (vs. broad) extensions more than powerless consumers; this effect was mediated by the association between narrow extensions and high status. This effect was stronger when consumers were in a competitive (vs. non-competitive) mindset and when the consumption situation was public (vs. private).
