Recent studies have shown that consumers contend more with information about firm crisis. However, little is known about the effects of different response strategies on firm crisis resulting from critical motivation factors. Based on theories of regulatory focus and selective exposure, we analyze the differential evaluations on firm crisis by consumers who are either prevention or promotion orientated in self-regulation, and the psychological processes as firm crisis-relevant information increases. Evidence is found that consumers’ regulatory focus moderates the effect of information quantity on selective exposure, and induces different response strategies to firm crisis information.
