The “Shaken Self”: Product Choices As a Means of Restoring Self-View Confidence
We show that subtle situational factors (e.g. writing with one’s non-dominant hand) can temporarily “shake” one’s self-view confidence, resulting in an increased propensity of choosing self-view bolstering products. This effect, however, is attenuated when individuals have an opportunity to restore their self-view confidence prior to the final choice task.
