abstractTwo experiments and one field study investigate the importance of appetitive desire when making multiple consumption choices at once. In the first two studies, we show that an increase in the attractiveness of the object of desire, namely food, enhances variety seeking in the object of desire. Our results also provide theoretical insights on the effect of desire on choice rules. In a last study, we replicate these findings in a real-life setting and generalize them to other types of desire. The findings are situated in prior work on variety seeking and integrated into a discussion on the theoretical implications.
