The Impact of Power on Reliance on Feelings Versus Reasons in Decision Making

This research examines the impact of power on consumer decision making. We hypothesize that consumers in high- (vs. low-) power state are more likely to rely on affective feelings (vs. cognitive reasoning) in decision making. Five experiments provide convergent evidence using different operationalizations of feeling based versus reason-based decision making.
