Too Much Experience: Predicting Others’ Emotive Reactions and Making Recommendations After Repeated Exposure

Individuals can quickly become desensitized to emotive content (e.g. comedy, Lady Gaga pictures) after repeated exposure. Afterwards, we find people incorrectly use their own desensitized reactions to predict unexposed others’ reactions to similar experiences, thus becoming worse at selecting experiences for unexposed others. However, unexposed others predict the opposite.
