The Role of Arousal in Schema Based Evaluations

This research tests the link between a person’s state of arousal and the schema congruity effect. The results show consumers prefer moderately incongruent products more when experiencing high arousal. However, consistent with the belief that extreme incongruity results in arousal overload, consumers prefer extremely incongruent products more under low arousal.
