Numerical Cognition and a Mere-Looking Effect in Multi-Attribute Choice
Attention’s causal effects are examined in multi-attribute binary choices. In the present studies, we take advantage of numerical-cognition findings that Arabic integers have a left-to-right spatial orientation that can subtly shift attention between options. Preference reversals emerged. This “mere looking” effect suggests a strong link between visual attention and choice.
