Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth: How Conflicting Nonconscious Goals Influence Consumer Choice

The present study proposed and tested three competing hypotheses regarding the pursuit and resolution of conflicting nonconscious goals (i.e., inhibition, overriding, and competing). One study showed that conflicting nonconscious goals were activated and pursued together when conflicting goal cues were primed. Moreover, it was demonstrated that nonconsciously pursuing conflicting goals increased the tendency to defer choice.
