Ethical Brand Perception Formation When Information Is Inconsistent - an Impression Formation Perspective

This research builds on the recently emerging literature on consumer perceived ethicality (CPE) and experimentally explores how consumers form moral impressions of brands when confronted with inconsistent information. Findings suggest that impression formation processes differ depending on whether consumers are explicitly requested to evaluate brand ethics or not.
