“It’S Not You, It’S Me”: How Corporate Social Responsibility Decreases Customer Citizenship Behavior

This paper analyzes how CSR activities influence helping behaviors among customers. Across two studies, we demonstrate that participants faced with an opportunity to satiate self-defining goals through CSR had a reduced propensity to help other customers. Besides, we propose entitativity as a driver of customer helping behavior.
