Please Do Interrupt, But Nicely! the Effect of Positive and Negative Interruptions on Product Evaluation and Choice

This research studies the affective consequences of interruptions on evaluation and choice. Six studies demonstrate that positive (negative) interruptions lead to unfavourable (favourable) evaluation and lower (higher) choice of pre-interruption products; but favourable (unfavourable) evaluation and higher (lower) choice of post-interruption products. Relevant mediation and moderation effects are also found.
