Distrust Reduces Attitudinal Ambivalence Through Reconciliatory Elaboration

Distrust prompts consumers to activate inconsistent cognitions. The resulting dissonance prompts an effortful reconciliation process that reduces attitudinal ambivalence. The first two studies demonstrate the effect of distrust on attitudinal ambivalence. The last study replicates the main findings in the more externally valid setting of distrust of a media source.
