6H Social Exclusion Enhance Self-Improvement Consumption? It Depends on Domain Differences and Implicit Self-Theories

We examine whether social exclusion enhances subsequent self-improvement consumption. The results from three experiments suggest that being rejected or ignored lead to across-domain or within-domain self-improvement consumption differently. Individual differences in implicit self-theories (entity vs. incremental theorists) are found to enhance the effects above.
