The level of congruity between an object and its attribute is determined by the degree of match. Products with moderately incongruent associations enhance evaluations–this is the moderate schema incongruity effect. We investigate the influence of (in)congruity between an extrinsic cue (sponsor) and a product (wine) on consumers’ product evaluations.
