Making Sense of Spontaneity: In-The-Moment Decisions Promote More Meaningful Experiences
When preparing for experiences, when should consumers allocate time to experience-relevant decisions: in advance or in the moment? We demonstrate that, compared to in-advance decisions, in-the-moment decisions are more likely to spark sense-making processes, which enhance how meaningful experiences feel. In-the-moment decisions also boost future engagement intentions and psychological well-being.
