The Affective-Cognitive Model of Stimulus-Based Affect: Individual Differences in Response to the Vividness of Product Descriptions

Subjects were exposed to vivid versus pallid descriptions of Cinabon™ rolls. The findings:(1) the associative network of memories of the aroma associated with the product mediated the influence of vividness on desire, attitudes, and purchase intention. (2) Hedonic rationalizations – justifications for yielding to an eating temptation – mediated the influence of affect intensity on craving and desire. But cognitive deliberations – thoughts that focus on the consequences of indulging, failed to mediate the effect of affect intensity on desire.
