Share My Failure, Not My Success: How People Make Ubiquity Judgments Based on Past Events
This research examines how consumers judge the ubiquity of positive (vs. negative) events experienced by themselves (vs. others). Across two studies, we demonstrate that consumers evaluate their own negative experience to be more ubiquitous than the same event experienced by another person. This pattern reversed for positive experiences.
