The “Why” of Spending Matters: the Role of Extrinsic and Intrinsic Goals on Consumer Spending Choices and Hedonic Value Estimations

Past research suggests that what we buy (experiential vs. material; prosocial vs. proself) impact one’s well-being. We propose that why—the motivation behind—not only determines the spending choices made, but also the well-being experienced. Three studies test the influence of dispositional and situational intrinsic and extrinsic goals in consumption.
