Is Your Product in the Right Place?: the Effect of Objects' Elongation and Spatial Disposition on Size Perception
Recent studies showed that product elongation has a positive influence on size assessment. This research seeks to demonstrate that the positive effect of elongation on size perception stems from a combination of assimilation/contrast judgments and a spatial disposition bias. Five studies were undertaken, where objects’ spatial disposition, elongation level, cardinal orientation, and object shape were manipulated. These findings add to the cognitive psychology and consumer behavior literatures. They have critical managerial implications in terms of packaging, visual display merchandising, and positioning.
