The Awed Holistic Thinker: the Effect of Awe Experience on Individuals’ Thinking Styles

This research examines the effect of awe on people’s thinking styles. Seven studies showed that awe could promote holistic thinking (studies 1, 2A-2D) through the mediating role of self-diminishment tendency (study 3). Moreover, we demonstrated how the proposed effect influences consumers’ reactions to service failures (study 4).
