Abstract

Studied how the number of choices confronting an individual influences his perceived decision freedom and, consequently, his satisfaction and consumption level. 72 college students, randomly assigned to 1 of 2 experimental conditions, were asked to select one soft drink flavor. Perceived decision freedom and consumption levels were significantly greater for those selecting from an enlarged-choice set, but there was no significant difference in the Ss' stated satisfaction.
