- A harsh and disagreeable combination, especially of sounds
Rarely does post-decision dissonance hit me after making a purchase. I'm not an impulse buyer when it comes clothing, electronics, or the latest music download (although, there have been occasions [*coughcough*MichaelBuble*coughcough* when I'm a tad trigger happy with iTunes]. I am, however, an impulse shopper.
- Impulse buyers leave the store with something and feel bad about it for a time.
- Impulse shoppers leave the store without purchasing but pine over an item for days, weeks, even years.
See, while post-decision dissonance rarely hits me after making a purchase, it often goes on a full-frontal attack when I don't.
