This paper illuminates how the spacing of stimuli influences affective reactions. The findings indicate that people prefer negative stimuli in massed presentation forms and positive stimuli spaced apart. Two theories may explain this phenomenon: processing fluency and affective habituation. This research enhances understanding of how adjacent ads influence advertisement/brand evaluations.
