A Three-Factor Model of Consumer Preference For Self-Designed Products

In this research, we develop a three-factor (i.e., outcome accuracy, mere authorship, and process affect) model of consumer preference for self-designed products. We propose that the preference structure for self-designed products can be determined by one, two, or three of the factors. A study involving 512 participants designing, in different task formats, a Nike iD sports shoe and then evaluating, after different lengths of delay, their self-design embedded in a set of 30 different designs provides preliminary support for this model.
