Negative Mood and Goal Achievement: the Role of Mindset Congruency in Goal Pursuit.

This study investigates how negative mood influences consumers’ goal pursuit. I propose that the influence of negative mood during the preactional goal phase facilitates the formation of concrete goal-related plans. A concrete mindset, which is congruent with the mindset required during the preactional goal phase, would facilitate goal pursuit.
