When, How, and Why Hedonic Adaptation Generates a New Consumer Desire

This work shows preliminary results of a model developed from a 10-month longitudinal study designed to test whether the emergence of a new desire comes from consumer hedonic adaptation processes. Partial results show such an effect. The current level of enjoyment with a product, consequence of hedonic adaptation, influences desire.
