Tell Me What to Do When I Am in a Good Mood. Show Me What to Do When I Am in a Bad Mood: Mood As a Moderator of Social Norm’S Influence

This paper investigates the differential effect of mood for both descriptive and injunctive norms. Results show that injunctive norms lead to more positive attitudes and intentions under positive (vs. negative) mood, and descriptive norms is more effective under negative mood. We show that this effect translates to actual behavior.
