Role of Hedonic Choices in Sequential Decision-Making

We propose that hedonic purchases induce a justification mindset that influences subsequent decisions by shifting focus from desirability to justifiability of a choice. An initial hedonic purchase, therefore, magnifies the compromise effect, reduces purchase momentum, and increases choice of the most indulgent option when this option is easier to justify.
