Abstract

The objective of this research is to test the theoretical conceptualizations of the self - the malleable self-concept - by examining the interplay of brand personality and social situation in determining brand preference and evaluation. This research also aims to assess the moderating influence of self-monitoring in the relationship. Two experimental studies were conducted in Korea. Findings suggest that the congruency of brand personality traits and social situations leads to a more positive brand attitude. This research also supported theory-based interactions in which situation congruity was enhanced for high versus low self-monitors.
