Parenting Mindset Salience and Its Influence on Uniqueness Seeking

Two studies demonstrate that parenting mindset salience makes consumer interdependent self-construal more salient but does not do so for independent self-construal. This salient interdependent self-construal leads to a lower preference for unique or cool products. Moreover, this effect was stronger for females than for males, and mediated by interdependent self-construal.
