Mood and Choice: the Influence of Self-Relevance, Need For Cognition and Affective Feelings on Consumption Decisions
EXTENDED ABSTRACT - Both the affect-priming model and affect-as-information models suggest that compared to those in a negative mood, individuals in a positive mood are less likely to process information as deeply. Recently, research has shown that individuals in a positive mood would process self-relevant information more deeply than those in a negative mood, indicating that self-relevance is the catalyst that directs individuals cognitive effort. Does this effect translate into choice? Two experiments were conducted to extend mood research into the domain of choice and consumption.
