What’S Yours Is Mine: Self-Construal and Reactance on Behalf of Others
This project examines the relationship between psychological reactance, a motivational state where individuals attempt to restore restricted freedoms, and self-construal, which concerns whether individuals define themselves as autonomous from or as interconnected with others. A scenario study confirmed our predictions that independent individuals would express more reactance when their freedom to choose their favorite product was restricted than when a friend was restricted, while interdependent individuals expressed the same amount of reactance whether they or a friend were restricted. We provide initial evidence that individuals can experience reactance on behalf of others, and that this experience is moderated by self-construal.
