Self-Expansion As a Way of Overcoming the Harmful Effects of Luxury-Csr Incongruity

Luxury brands often create prosocial images through CSR activities. These images can harm brand evaluations, particularly among self-enhancement oriented consumers who view such brand images as incompatible with their own motivations. These harmful effects can be mitigated by self-expansion, which helps reduce incompatibilities between the self and a brand.
