When Do Consumers Dispose of Possessions That Matter the Most? the Role of Inauthenticity

Inauthenticity decreases consumers’ connection to their possessions and, as a result, increases consumers’ tendency to dispose of these possessions and to purchase new products to replace the old possessions. Importantly, these effects occur for possessions that are relevant to the self-concept, i.e., possessions that matter the most to the consumers.
