Towards an Integrative Theory of Anchoring: Evidence For a Selective Accessibility Mechanism Across Anchor Types

Anchoring is thought to be the product of two distinct processes: (a) the anchoring-and-adjustment heuristic, when individuals provide their own anchors; and (b) selective accessibility, when an experiment provides an anchor. The present research uses procedural priming to demonstrate that both processes are more likely complementary than mutually exclusive.
