Cognitive dissonance

Emotion that runs through a customer after they have made a purchase and begin to rethink their purchase when new alternatives are exposed. Consumers will try to rationalise their choice by focusing on the advantages to the product that they have purchased. Cognitive dissonance is fundamentally the uncomfortable sensation caused by embracing conflicting ideas simultaneously.
