This research introduces the secondary contamination effect of luck. Four experiments demonstrate that by either actually or virtually contacting with a source with different luck characteristics, an originally neutral vehicle will be transformed into a contaminated vehicle, and a recipient’s responses will be in turn affected by touching it.
