For Whom Is Attainment Less Alluring? the Impact of Cultural Values on Consumers’ Motivation For Goal Pursuit

We argue and show in 5 studies that independent (vs. interdependent) cultural values increase motivation for attainment (vs. maintenance) goals, independently of the effect of regulatory focus.
