5-L: Psychological Drivers of Customer Compliance: Self-Identity Threats and Discrete Emotions

This research develops and tests a theoretical framework on consumer compliance by incorporating self-identity theory and cognitive-emotion theory. We propose self-identity threats and discrete emotions influence customer compliance. A qualitative study will be conducted first to develop and refine the theoretical framework, which will then be tested by experimental design.
