Choice inconsistency has long been studied in economics and psychology. In this article we critically review theories of media choice, showing that they have not explicitly dealt with this phenomenon. Although digitalization has recently made it more salient, the communication literature on inconsistent choice still remains highly fragmented. We draw on interdisciplinary literature to address blind spots in our theorization of inconsistent media selection.

Abstract

Choice inconsistency has long been studied in economics and psychology. In this article we critically review theories of media choice, showing that they have not explicitly dealt with this phenomenon. Although digitalization has recently made it more salient, the communication literature on inconsistent choice still remains highly fragmented. We draw on interdisciplinary literature to address blind spots in our theorization of inconsistent media selection.
