Effects of Perceived Other’S Satisfaction and the Role of the Interdependent Self in Group Service Consumption

This study on group service consumption suggests that Perceived Other’s Satisfaction (POS) directly influences both Customer Satisfaction (CS) and repeat intention. The Interdependent Self-construal (IS) moderates the relationship between POS and repeat intention. We propose an unexplored antecedent of CS in intimate group consumption and identify a promising new area of cross-cultural service research.
