Social Dynamics in Consumer Communications: How Hierarchy Shapes Language
Four studies demonstrate that the feeling of powerfulness increases consumers’ language conciseness. This effect appears because a feeling of high power reduces consumers’ need-for-justification. This research also illustrates the bidirectional effects of power in language conciseness by showing high-power consumers are less persuaded by concise marketing language from companies.
