18-B: Jumping on the Bandwagon Or Seeking Novelty: an Experimental Study on the Effectiveness of Heuristics to Promote Pro-Environmental Behavior.

This study examines the impact of two distinct forms of heuristics (bandwagon and novelty) when promoting sustainable behavior. Results show that the effect of a bandwagon heuristic is mediated by normative influence, while novelty heuristic is mediated by perceived uniqueness. In addition, the self-concept regulates the susceptibility for the heuristic.
