When I Share, I Feel Unique: Sharing One’S Customization Experience Increases Feelings of Pride

We demonstrate that sharing one's customization experience (e.g., by messaging a friend) versus not sharing it increases feelings of pride toward the customized product. This positive effect of sharing one’s customization experience is limited to self-expressive (but not functional) customization tasks and consumers high (vs. low) in need for uniqueness.
