Sharing the Reward Or Blaming the Failure: the Moderating Role of Self-Brand Connection on Attitude Towards the Brand
Purchase decisions may be prompt by the need to self-gratify (self-compensate) some positive (negative) feeling about the self caused by extraordinary achievement (failure). By illustrating that these different psychological contexts affect the attitude towards brands consumers feel connected to, this research provides a greater understanding of how brands are related to the self concept.
