Examining the Effect of Altruistic Prosocial Behaviors on Subsequent Indulgence
Across three studies, both with hypothetical and with actual giving, we find that the effect of altruistic prosocial behaviors on consumers’ self-indulgence depends on how moral the givers perceive indulgences to be. Altruistic givers are more willing to indulge as perceived morality of indulgences increases, supporting an affect regulation explanation.
