The Influence of Descriptive Norm on Conservation Behavior: the Moderating Role of Construal Level

This research proposed spatial distance, a dimension of psychological distance, as an underlying mechanism of the distinctive effect of provincial norms (vs. general norms) by examining the moderating role of Construal Level Theory. The Findings demonstrated that provincial (general) norms are more effective when paired with low (high) construal level.
