Lee, Nick, Beatson, Amanda, Taylor, Paul, & Durden, Geoff (2007) The effect of salesperson stereotype activation on consumer emotional profiles and cognition. In The 36th European Marketing Academy Conference, 22-25 May 2007, Reykjavik University, Reykjavik. (Unpublished)
This study examines stereotypes of salespeople and their impact on consumer emotional responses and information processing in the UK. After a brief theoretical review, the authors present an experiments research design utilizing empirically-developed salesperson profiles in three scenarios. The results indicate that, while stereotype activation appears to result in significantly difference motional profiles in consumers than non-stereotypical encounters, this appears to have little impact on consumer cognition in the UK environment. Some possible reasons for these results are advanced. Finally, managerial and theoretical implications are discussed, and directions for future research proffered.
