The Change You Didn’T See Coming: Nonconscious Consequences of Dynamic Transference in Consumer Contexts

Four studies demonstrate that subtle exposure to change–whether increasing/decreasing the size of consumer products or the color saturation of print advertisements and television commercials–systematically bolsters participants’ subsequent subjective ratings (e.g., product liking, willingness-to-pay), relative to control participants, without the participants’ conscious awareness of the exposure to subtle change.
