When Do Consumers Feel More Authentic? the Interplay of Self-Control Choices and Thinking Styles

We examined how consumption self-control affects authenticity for consumers with different thinking styles. Making a high self-control choice made participants with a higher (vs. lower) preference for deliberation feel more authentic, whereas making a low self-control choice made participants with a higher (vs. lower) preference for intuition feel more authentic.
