‘Tis Better to Give Than to Receive: Preference Estimates Conditioned on Own and Other’S Preferences
Three studies show consumers are more accurate when estimating the probability that others will like what they like (P(other+|self+) compared to estimates of liking what others like (P(self+|other+). How consumers categorize information about their own preferences, others’ preferences, and attributes of the products is shown to drive these differences.
