The Dialectical Mind Can Be Sweet Toward Crisis-Associated Brands

This study explores roles of consumers' philosophical thinking and a country of origin in a crisis setting. Dialectical thinking induces an increase in Chinese consumers’ purchase intention for crisis-associated brands. This is true for brands from China and Western countries. Findings contribute to ways of handling brand crises in China.
