Consistent Or Not? the Role of Product Visibility in Sequential Decisions

This research introduces product-visibility as a factor affecting consistency of product-related decisions, in the context of social-self-identities. We show that when a product involved in a first decision is highly visible; the decision-maker’s cognitive-rigidity is enhanced, increasing the likelihood of subsequent decision consistency, especially in individuals with high public self-consciousness.
