O9. the Role of Numerical Identification in Customer Reaction Toward Service Failure

This research investigates the consequence of assigning numbers to customers (e.g., room numbers) in a service context. Two experiments show that, after being identified by a number, customers would be more tolerant of service failure. This effect is found to be driven by the self-dehumanization process triggered by numerical identification.
