Yuck! Feelings of Disgust, Self-Threats and Compensatory Behaviors.
Consumers frequently encounter disgusting images. We examine how physical and moral disgust differentially affect consumers’ identity and compensatory consumption. We show that physical disgust decreases consumers’ sense of power, which prompts them to consume conspicuous goods. In contrast, moral disgust decreases consumers’ self-esteem, causing them to act prosocially.
