Low-Power State Promotes Variety-Seeking

In the current research, we propose that low-power state promotes variety-seeking. This effect occurs because consumers in low-power state desire sense of control and variety-seeking is a way to restore it. Four studies, including secondary data analysis and three experiments, provide systematic evidence for this effect across different product categories.
