Consumer Attachment Styles and Preference For Sharing Products

The current research explores how attachment styles influence sharing (i.e., use of others' cars, houses, bags). The authors demonstrate that individuals with anxious attachment styles are more likely to use non-commercial (vs. commercial) sharing facilities. Further, the effect of anxious attachment on using shared facilities is moderated by contagion.
