Just Do It: Motor Behavior Based Fluency Effects on Product Evaluations
In four studies, we demonstrate that individuals who had recently or contemporaneously employed a particular motor procedure, such as reading information from top to bottom versus from bottom to top, evaluated a product more favorably when that same motor procedure had to be employed during an evaluation task. We observe this effect both for procedures involving passive (eye movement to track a moving object) and active (physical hand movements) motor behaviors.
