Self-Esteem Discrepancy and Adolescents’ Self-Connections to Peer Groups' Brands
Prior research has shown that discrepancies between implicit and explicit self-esteem are associated with higher self-enhancement needs. This study proposes that individuals with a discrepant self-esteem will have higher tendencies to develop self-connections to brands that are associated with their reference groups as a form self-enhancement. Findings from an adolescent sample provide empirical support for this postulation.
