14M Others Vs. Fate: an Exploration of the Nature of Loss of Control, Compensatory Consumption, and Consumer Responses to Smart Technology

We posit that a perceived loss of control due to others(vs. fate) invokes a personally agentic(vs. externally agentic) coping mechanism in consumers, and that their compensatory coping strategies are reflected in their preference for device-controlled(vs. voice-controlled) smart technology products, as these products exhibit characteristics that map onto personal(vs. external) agency.
