The Relationship Between Overconfidence and Underconfidence, and Consumer Value

This research documents the relationship between knowledge miscalibration (overconfidence or underconfidence) and the dimensions of consumer value achieved through consumption, including perceived play, aesthetics, excellence and efficiency. Findings reveal that overconfidence is positively related to perceived play and excellence, and underconfidence is positively related to perceived efficiency and aesthetics.
