The Role of Gender Congruity For Anthropomorphized Product Perception

This research extends prior research on anthropomorphism by demonstrating a gender-schema congruity effect: when a human gender schema is primed that is congruent to consumers’ own gender, consumers show more preferential evaluations and are more likely to perceive the product as human, even when no schema-congruent product features are present.
