Effect of Goals Salience and Goals Conflict on Typicality: the Case of "Health Food"
The aim of this article is to highlight the role of consumer’s goals, in this case the « health » goal, in the cognitive representations and perception of food products, in particular « health foods ». On the basis of the goal theories used in a categorical approach in information processing, we show that the salience of health goals has a significant influence on the perceived typicality of the products in the health food category. The consumption context and the overall hierarchy of the goals sought constitute moderating variables.
