Construal Level Theory Explains the Occurrence of Choice Overload Effects
This research demonstrates how desirability/feasibility mindset explains choice overload effects. Consumers who are exposed to large (small) choice-sets construe impending tasks concretely (abstractly), and weigh desirability attributes less (more) than feasibility attributes. Subsequently, the triggered feasibility mindset decreases the preference for large assortments.
