Consumer Ambivalence, Dissonance, and Indifference – Apples, Oranges, and Pears Or Peas in the Same Pod?

Prior research shows mixed results for the effects of attitudinal and situational ambivalence and ignores their relationships with indifference and dissonance. Using two experimental studies, we show significant differences in the effects of attitudinal and situational ambivalence on hedonic versus utilitarian consumer choices, as mediated by consumer dissonance and indifference.
