The Impostor Syndrome from Luxury Consumption

25 Jun 2018 - 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Abstract:The present research proposes that luxury consumption can be a double-edged sword: while luxury consumption can have positive consequences for individuals, it can also make consumers feel less authentic, producing what we call the impostor syndrome from luxury consumption.
