The Moderating Effect of Self-Monitoring on Consumer Response to Gender Role Portrayals

EXTENDED ABSTRACT - During the last three decades, a substantial body of knowledge has accumulated on the moderating role of self-monitoring with respect to consumer behavior (Gangestad and Snyder 2000). One area in which our knowledge about the moderating effect of self-monitoring is limited is consumer attitudes toward commercial gender role portrayals. The topic is of considerable importance since gender identity can be a key aspect of brand positioning. The effectiveness of persuasive messages can therefore be considerably enhanced by knowing which consumer characteristics moderate the responsiveness to gender role portrayals; and self-monitoring could be one of these potential moderators.
