A Cautious Pursuit of Risk in Online Word-Of-Mouth: the Effect of Truncated Distribution on Consumer Decisions
Combining field and experimental data, we investigate word-of-mouth (WOM) based consumer decisions in four studies. Contrary to traditional reference-dependent predictions, high WOM dispersion is preferred among options with high WOM average. This pattern is driven by truncation of WOM distribution and elongation bias.
