19F Humanlike Underdogs: the Moderating Role of Service Type (Sst Vs. Face-To-Face) and Brand Status (Underdog Vs. Top-Dog) on Brand Attitude

We instigated the effects of service type on brand status on brand attitude. We find that people show more favorable attitude toward face-to-face service than self-service technology for underdog brands. However, this effect was reversed in private consumption context. We also demonstrate mediation processes to account for the proposed effects.
