The Effect of Perceived Learning Opportunity on Consumers’ Evaluations of Really New Products

We propose that consumers who are oriented towards future opportunities (learning) rather than focused on the attributes that maybe difficult to understand in the present will enhance consumers’ evaluation of really-new products. Unlike previous research, which has studied immediate costs-benefits, we focus on consumers’ long-term considerations of adopting really-new product.
