The Role of Mindfulness in Consumer Behavior

The Role of Mindfulness in Consumer Behavior 


This research calls for consumer researchers’ attention to the potential role of mindfulness, as either a psychological trait or state. In this presentation, we provide (1) a general review and description of the mindfulness construct, (2) a discussion of how mindfulness can be used in consumer research (e.g., information processing, decision making, consumer welfare), (3) results from an advertising persuasion study where mindfulness is shown to moderate persuasion routes, and (4) an overall discussion of our on-going research program as well as further research areas for this construct.
