Two Shades of Green: Unravelling the Composition, Antecedents and Consequences of Benign and Malicious Envy on Brand Attitude

Malicious (benign) envy is conceptualized as a cluster of relatively high (low) envy and low (high) admiration.

These contextual factors differentially activate the assimilative (contrastive) emotion of admiration (envy) by influencing self-other congruence and significantly impact brand attitude.
