Regaining Control Or Avoiding Risk: When Social Crowdedness Inhibits Versus Encourages Preference of Diy Product

This paper proposes an important outcome of social crowdedness, loss of control, which results in the motivation of control restoration and the preference for control regaining products (DIY product). The results also showed that when DIY product fails to be a mean of control restoration, avoidance motivation dominates consumers’ choice.
