When Repetition Leads to Faster Predicted Adaptation: the Role of Variety and Focalism.

This research extends the literature on hedonic adaptation prediction in three ways. First, we show that making usage repetition salient stimulates predictions of diminishing future enjoyment. Second, we demonstrate that focalism mediates the effect of salient repetition on hedonic adaptation prediction. Third, we explore the interaction between repetition and variety.
