Description

This chapter examines hoarding behavior through the lens of consumer behavior as an extreme form of psychological ownership. The phenomenon of hoarding analyzed in context of psychological ownership theory reveals connections between the intense emotional attachment to possessions that characterizes hoarding and the motivations for psychological ownership. In addition, applying psychological ownership theory to existing knowledge of consumer disposition practices offers insights into encouraging disposition. An integrated framework emerges for understanding both difficulties with disposition and ways to encourage disposition.
