'Ugh, I'm So Busy': A Status Symbol for Our Time
March 1, 2017

In the US, one can make a good guess about how rich somebody is based on the long hours they put in at work. With this workaholic lifestyle comes quite a bit of prestige, a perk that Americans are all too aware of. An article in the Journal of Consumer Research delves into the prominence of an unusual status symbol: seeming busy.

Having No Life Is the New Aspirational Lifestyle
February 20, 2017

Americans are working longer hours than ever before, with the office increasingly stealing our leisure time. But according to new research published in the Journal of Consumer Research, this hectic way of life is, for many of us, far from an unmitigated negative.

Why the "Like" Button May Be Killing Activism
February 17, 2017

In a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, researchers asked people to engage in a token action in support of a social cause. After that, participants were given the opportunity to do something more meaningful, like donating money. The results showed that slacktivism can sometimes encourage people to take further, more elaborate actions, depending largely on whether the initial token activity was done publicly or privately.

Conservatives File Fewer Consumer Complaints
February 16, 2017

So, that used car that was billed as being “like new” broke down within a month of your purchase. To make things worse, the bank where you got the loan to purchase it charged you hidden fees. Did you demand satisfaction? File a complaint? The answer may depend on your political leanings, according to newly published research from the Journal of Consumer Research.

The Politics of Complaining
February 3, 2017

An analysis of complaints submitted to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission found that people in counties that favored Barack Obama in the 2012 election were more likely to register their displeasure, even controlling for demographics and socioeconomic factors.

Want Your Kids to Eat Healthy Food? Stop Calling It Healthy
January 31, 2017

In one study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, researchers read two different versions of a story to preschoolers about a little girl who ate crackers. In one version, the crackers were described as helping the girl be healthy and strong. In the other version, the crackers were described as being yummy.

Large Smiles Seen as Indicative of a Lack in Competency Levels
January 26, 2017

Published in the Journal of Consumer Research, the study found that broad smiles won people’s affections, but failed to engender confidence in their abilities. This meant that grinning marketers were better able to convince consumers to buy their product or service in areas that carried less risk.

Researchers have found that the level of smile intensity in ads may have an impact on the consumers perception of the company's competence and warmth. In a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, researchers found that broader smiles in marketing pictures are perceived as warmer but less competent than those with slight smiles.

Why Healthy Food Doesn't Have to Cost More
January 21, 2017

When shopping for groceries and trying to decide between two items -- say, brands of granola bars -- how do you determine which is healthier? A lot of us automatically assume that the more expensive product is healthier, according to a new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research.

What Neuroscience Has to Say about Decision-Making
January 13, 2017

According to the Journal of Consumer Research, setting the price of a product to a round number engages a consumer’s feelings because it is quicker to process. Therefore, a product that is marketed using emotions or imagery should be priced with a round number. In contrast, when marketing a good that highlights the features and benefits of that product, a nonrounded figure should be used. A complex number requires more processing time and uses our cognition in a purchase decision.

The Science of Good Salesmanship
January 12, 2017

One of the studies we talk about in the book, published in the Journal of Consumer Research, showed one option to shoppers and asked if they would purchase it, and 10% did. When introduced to a second option, 34% chose the original option and 32% chose the second option. So, buying behavior went from 10% to 66%. The reason is because our brains naturally do comparisons.

Flagging Fake News and Bad Sources Won't Work
January 12, 2017

In a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research, people read statements that were flagged as true or false. Then, after delays of 30 minutes and three days, they saw the statements again, and indicated whether each was true or false. After three days, people remembered 26 percent of the false statements as true (and 15 percent of the true statements as false). Flagging fake news with warnings could be useful -- it’s just easy for people to forget the warnings.

Why It’s Still “Unmanly” to Be Eco-Friendly
January 9, 2017

No trend is stronger in the consumer world than the eco-friendly/all-natural/organic movement. But not all consumers are buying into the craze -- most notably men. Stubborn as they are, men are less enticed by the eco-friendly movement than their female counterparts. Research in the Journal of Consumer Research sheds light on this gender divide.

The Cost of Food Influences Your Perception of How Healthy It Is
January 3, 2017

According to the Journal of Consumer Research, something really funky is going on with how consumers view the health level of a food relative to its price. Basically, researchers found that the higher the price of a food, the more likely people were to think it was healthy. What's more, they sometimes refused to believe that a food was healthy when it was inexpensive.

'Busy-ness' Is New Public Marker of Our Worth

A study in the Journal of Consumer Research found that experiential presents proved more effective at strengthening relationships than material gifts. With that in mind, service industries have launched a battle of gimmickry, fighting to outdo one another with ever-desirable experiences for the hard to buy for. But among the handmade back-rub coupons and restaurant bookings, one experience hovers high above the rest: New Year’s Eve by private jet. Twice.

A 2012 study in the Journal of Consumer Research found that the way a statement was framed had an effect on how well people thought they could stick to it. Saying “I don’t eat X” when tempted by an unhealthy snack, for example, made participants feel more “psychologically empowered” than using “can’t.”
