Preference Construction From Non-Consumption

This research addresses how non-consumption affects people’s longing and preference. We hypothesize that in the absence of salient alternatives, longing and preference increases over time; but in the presence of salient alternatives, longing and preference decreases over time. These predictions were supported across three studies.
