Effects of Dialecticism on Consumer Responses to Products With Conflicting Goals

Research on drivers of consumer reactions to healthy vices (indulgent products with healthy claims) has been limited. We focus on dialecticism to predict and explain responses to these products within and across cultures. One important finding is that dialectical consumers (vs.non-dialectics) are significantly more accepting of products with conflicting goals.
