Plush Bear Or Metallic Bear? the Effect of Social Exclusion on Consumer Preference For Different Product Textures

The current research investigates the influence of social exclusion on consumer preference for products with different textures. Across three experiments, our findings indicate that socially excluded consumers prefer products with soft texture than the socially included ones. The boundary condition of this effect is documented in this research.
