Me, Myself, and My Choices. the Influence of Self-Awareness on Preference-Behavior Consistency.
Numerous studies have shown that choice making is often characterized by preference-behavior inconsistencies. In this research we argue that private self-awareness reduces these inconsistencies by making consumers behave in a more congruent manner with their personal preferences. In study 1, we show that high self-aware consumers stick more to their favorite choice options than low self-aware consumers. In study 2, we show that this increased preference-behavior consistency makes it more difficult for context effects to intrude, suggesting that high self-aware consumers have fewer problems in determining their personal preferences.
