The Category Spillover Effects of Brand Hatred

We test two competing predictions for the spillover effects of brand hatred to same- versus other-category brands: whereas, a revenge-based account predicts that same-category brands profit, a self-protection-based account predicts that the same-category brands suffer. The results of four studies find unequivocal support for the self-protection account.
