8D Emotions, Not Knowledge, Are Power: the Curios Case of Evidence Insensitive Product Rejection

When consumers reject any products, marketers typically seek to allay the concerns consumers hold in support of this rejection. Deviant products, however, are intuitively rejected. Lacking substantive concerns supporting this rejection, consumers rationalize it post hoc, leading marketers’ efforts astray. Being non-causal, allaying these rationalizations does not affect rejection.
