Dual system and dual process views of the human mind have contrasted automatic, fast, and non-conscious with controlled, slow, and conscious thinking. This paper integrates duality models from the perspective of consumer psychology by identifying three relevant theoretical strands: Persuasion and attitude change (e.g. Elaboration Likelihood Model),...
Theory and past research suggests that greater levels of consumer involvement and product usage lead to higher levels of word of mouth (WOM). This paper presents some tests of hypotheses related to product usage and WOM, based on secondary consumer panel data from five fmcg product trials. The main findings are that brand usage range within a produ...

Some cross-cultural psychologists have shown differences in cognition between Eastern and Western cultures, described as holistic versus analytic (H-A) systems of thought. It is widely assumed that Buddhism has contributed to holistic cognition. This thesis explores holistic thought among Western Buddhists by integrating methods and theories mainly...
This article discusses negative and positive consumer word of mouth (NWOM and PWOM) in a mostly quantitative context. Based on the correlations between WOM and business growth found in Marsden, Samson and Upton's (2005) 'Advocacy Drives Growth' study, possible explanations for the superior predictive power of NWOM are presented. It is suggested tha...

Automatic, or unconscious, stereotyping is of theoretical and social importance, and one social issue receiving current political attention in the UK concerns stereotypes of asylum-seekers. This project, cons...
In an article aimed at complementing Boyer and Sperber's (relatively structural) views of counter-intuitive concepts and their robustness in the religious domain, Franks (2003) has recently drawn attention to the fact that the tolerance of such conflict or contradiction appears to be less domain-specific in some cultures, such as those found in Eas...
