The Buzz Behind 'The Buzz' Matters: Tense and Energetic Arousal As Separate Motivations For Word of Mouth

This research reconceptualizes arousal into two types, tense and energetic, which helps explain the missing mechanism behind its influence on word of mouth (WOM). This work also examines how the WOM-recipient’s response (desired vs. less desired) can influence WOM likelihood by differentially impacting WOM-sources’ post-sharing arousal.
