Social exclusion is a common experience among college students. From the perspective of consumers' psychology and behavior, this paper studies the effect of social exclusion on college students' self-control consumption behavior with common social exclusion scenes, and explores the moderating effect of implicit personality and self-efficacy from the perspective of the individual. The results show that compared with consumers without social exclusion, consumers with social exclusion will show a lower tendency for self-control. Implicit personality and self-efficacy play a moderating role in the influence of social exclusion on individual self-control consumption behavior.
