The Impact of Sales Team’S Perceived Entitativity on Customer Satisfaction

We investigate how sales team’s perceived entitativity influences customer satisfaction. We propose that either behavioral (e.g., coordinated behaviors) or physical (e.g., the same uniform) entitativity cues enhance customer satisfaction. Further, the interaction between the two cues is multiplicative, such that greater satisfaction occurs only when both cues indicate high entitativity.
