N8. Effect of Awe on Collectable Consumer Experience

It has been known that awe is caused by encountering an unexpected event and stimulates explanation-seeking via a need for cognitive accommodation (Valdesolo, Shtulman, and Baron 2017). Collectable experiences are often unusual and unconventional (Keinan and Kivetz 2010). Hence, we hypothesize that awe increases individual’s preference for collectable consumer experience.
