Sex Differences in Customer Retaliatory Behaviors: the Role of Oxytocin?

This paper aims to investigate the hormonal underpinnings of retaliatory behaviors in a consumer setting. Using breastfeeding women as proxy for exogenously applied oxytocin, we conducted an online survey using a vignette that described a service failure. Breastfeeding women were less prone to retaliate than men than their non-breastfeeding counterparts.
