J4. a Large Pack of Toilet Paper Is Bad For Me: Self-Control and Consumers’ Responses to Product Quantity

We examine the association between product quantity and self-control using utilitarian products, a product domain that does not generally threaten self-control. We find a bidirectional effect between product quantity and self-control, whereby exposures to large product quantity decrease self-control, and activation of self-control decreases evaluation of product quantity.
