Superordinate Regional Identities and the Salience of Intergroup Rivalry: Effects of Spontaneous Recategorization on Brand Attitudes

Under the influence of chronically/temporarily salient identity needs, and when exposed to brands associated with a subgroup nested within the same regional identity, consumers can recategorize at the superordinate regional identity and exhibit more favorable attitudes toward former outgroup brands. However, this effect only emerges under low-levels of rivalry salience.
