How Thinking Style Impacts Consumer Reactions to Corporate Social Responsibility

We examine how consumers’ thinking style may impact their evaluation of CSR. We show that analytical thinkers evaluate companies more positively when the company-cause fit is high (vs. low), holistic (vs. analytical) thinkers evaluate companies more positively when the fit is low. CSR attributions mediate these effects.
