Trapped in the Rabbit Hole: Life History Strategies Modulate the Impact of Mild Stress on Hedonic Consumption
We examine how and when consumer life history strategies –short-term, reward-sensitive (fast) vs. long-term, goal-oriented (slow) foci- affect food-related decision-making. Three experiments demonstrate that consumers with fast, but not slow, life-history strategies are more sensitive to mild stress levels, boosting hedonic food consumption, especially when foods are presented as scarce.
