Working Against the Clock: Predicting Responses to Deadline Goal Failure

We examine consumer responses to deadline goal failure by developing and validating a new domain-specific scale (Studies 1 and 2) which predicts responses to real-life (academic) deadline-goal failure (Study 3). We consolidate previous contradicting findings on goal setting and goal failure by using our scale as a new moderator.
