Seeing Things in a Different Light: Agent Vs. Consumer Responses to Persuasion Attempts

This research examines how an individual’s role (dual vs. single role) influences their responses to persuasion attempts. Overall, we find that agent (dual roles) responses to persuasion attempts are more consistent with accuracy motivated processing. In contrast, consumer (single role) responses to persuasion attempts are more consistent with defense motivated processing.
