Consumers' Attachment and Commitment to Brands and Media Titles: the Role of Emotions

In this research, we develop a new emotion scale that applies to both media titles and advertiser brands. The dimensions include a positive affective dimension, plenitude; a negative dimension fear; and a mixed dimension, possession, which includes a rather negative facet, envy, and a rather positive one, love. This research also studies the effects of emotions on affective relational variables, and the potential mediating role of attachment on emotional commitment.
