D10. It's Meant For Me: When Serendipity Increases Word-Of-Mouth

High narcissistic consumers are more likely than low to spread word-of-mouth about serendipitous events. We explain this effect in terms of two distinct paths motivated by narcissistic admiration and narcissistic rivalry. We further offer empirical evidence for the role of psychological ownership motivation in driving word-of-mouth.
