Are Ingroup Recommendations Always Better? the Role of Outgroup Credibility on Parental Purchases and Attitudes

This paper uncovers how outgroup credibility can reduce ingroup bias. In particular, this paper examines how credibility acts as a boundary condition to social influence of parents (ingroups) and pediatricians (outgroups), turning outgroups more influential than ingroups on parental purchase intentions and brand attitudes.
