The Effect of Dual Anchors on Numeric Judgments: the Moderating Effects of Anchor Order and Domain Knowledge

Experiment 1 tests dual anchors and finds a primacy effect among high-knowledge individuals but a recency effect among low-knowledge individuals. Experiment 2 shows that extreme anchors suppress primacy effects in high knowledge, ostensibly due to perceived implausibility, but exaggerate recency effects in low knowledge where implausibility is not as obvious.
