Resistance Is Frugal: When Ignoring Nonconscious Goals Affects Psychological Ownership of Investment Decisions
Results of two experiments suggest that feelings of psychological ownership are greater when investment choices are incongruent with nonconsciously-activated goals, and that psychological ownership enhances subsequent word-of-mouth intentions.
