A Model of Consumer Self-Regulation Failure

This research introduces and tests a model of consumer self-regulation failure that explains how external factors shape self-regulation and when these factors undermine self-regulation. The model proposes that many self-regulation failures occur because the processes involved in self-regulation make consumers more like to rely on external cues for behavior.
