When Do Consumers Prefer Mistargeted Products? the Effect of Structure and Competition on Preference For Identity-(In)Consistency
Consumers have multiple identities that may be momentarily activated, leading toward approach toward identity-consistency and avoidance of identity-inconsistency. Contrary to this robust effect, three experiments show that a(n) associated (disassociated) inter-identity structure leads to approach toward identity-inconsistency, but only when inter-identity competition is low (high).
