N6. Not Myself: the Impact of Secret-Keeping on Consumer Choice Regret

This research investigates how the experience of secret-keeping affects consumers’ perception of their previous choice. Three studies reveal that the experience of secret-keeping increases consumers’ regret for the consumption choices they made previously, and show that this effect is driven by the perceived low intrinsic motivation for the chosen option.
