Both Good From Afar…And Far From Good? Mental Representation Changes Consumer Preference For Products From a Brand With a Reputation For Innovativeness

Four experiments show that when the behavioral context favors more concrete (vs. abstract) representations, consumers respond less (vs. more) positively to products offered by innovative brands.
