Abstract
This paper examines the influence of exposure to extreme luxury on a person’s well-being. Two studies indicate that exposure to extreme luxury triggers self-protection mechanisms. In particular, after viewing luxury that participants could not afford, they increase the importance they attach to intrinsic goals versus extrinsic ones.
