Priming Susceptibility: the Moderating Role of Self-Brand Connection on Nonconscious Priming Effects

This paper explores an important moderator of nonconscious priming effects: self-brand connection, a construct capturing personal relevance of brands. Findings from two experiments point to the moderating role of self-brand connection to both target and competing brands on nonconscious priming effects, suggesting that self-brand connection shields one from incidental encounters with environmental cues.
