To what extent are people aware of and in control of the inﬂuences for their purchasing and consumption behavior? Consumer researchers have dedicated considerable attention to aspects of consumer behavior that are deliberate and intentional. However, relatively limited attention has been paid to aspects of consumer behavior that operate outside of conscious awareness. These are referred to as automatic consumer processes. In the past decade, an increasing number of consumer researchers have focused on automatic consumer processes in their attempt to understand judgment and behavior.
