Shifting Perceptions of Negative Experiences Through Word-Of-Mouth: Episodic Dismissal and Asymmetric Effects of Valence on Consumer Evaluations

However, the present research shows that evaluations formed by negative (vs. positive) experiences are actually more malleable and more susceptible to being changed via social influence through word-of-mouth sharing.
