Products As Consumption Companions: How Culture Influences Consumer Responses to Anthropomorphic Products
This research finds that collectivistic consumers show exaggerated preference for anthropomorphic products, because these products represent social surrogates allowing for more communal consumption experiences. The effect holds across various product categories, regardless of whether collectivistic thinking is measured, primed, or operationalized based on ethnicity. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
