Show Me More! Powerlessness Drives Variety Seeking
This research investigates the impact of power on variety seeking behavior. Results from six studies provide convergent support that feeling powerless nudges individuals toward variety seeking. Additionally, we reveal that need for autonomy mediates this relationship and that the powerlessness-variety seeking effect is mitigated once need for autonomy is satiated.
