The Mystique of Masculine and Feminine Choices: How Aversive Feelings Underlie Preferences
The authors examine whether preferences for masculine and feminine choices are fostered through specific aversive feelings. Findings indicate that consumers’ select masculine choices to alleviate low-agentic feelings (e.g., feeling incompetent, powerless, or inferior) and feminine choices to allay aversive low-communion feelings (e.g., feeling excluded, disconnected, or isolated).
