The authors investigated whether psychological relatedness affects consumers’ sense of regret in consumption failure settings. Through three experiments the authors demonstrated that close relationship can alleviate sense of regret and this friendship effect was mediated by locus of causality, and was moderated by individuals’ level of subjective well-being.
