Holistic Versus Analytic Thinkers in the West: Differential Reliance on Logos in Cognition- and Feelings-Based Product Evaluations

Our research focuses on the effects of analytic-holistic information processing and product logos on cognitive and feelings-based product evaluations in France. One finding is that for less-known products logos have effects on cognitive evaluations only for holistic thinkers. The research offers several contributions to the extant studies of processing styles.
