Brand Extensions and Construal Culture
More than 80% of new products are brand extensions; the majority of them fail. By increasing the match between the extension type (prototype or exemplar) and audience characteristic (independent versus interdependent self-construal), a firm can bolster the success of an extension. In a series of studies, we find that people with independent and interdependent self-construals respond differently to the extension’s success or failure.
