The authors examine how consumers’ think about their emotions and the favorable outcomes that result. The conscious contemplation of emotions in decision making (emotional reasoning) was found to improve consumer choice quality beyond the effects of other types of emotional processing, including trust-in-feelings and affect-as-information.
