Consumers’ Dissociation Responses to Incidental Similarity of Products in Different Product Domains

The current research examines the effect of incidental similarity of products on consumers' dissociation responses in different product domains. Across three experiments, we find that consumers' dissociation responses are higher for the incidental similarity of high symbolic products. This effect is mediated by embarrassment and moderated by group belongingness.
