Does 8 of 10 Equal 80 of 100? the Scale Magnitude Effect on Singular Option Evaluation

This research extends the scale magnitude effect from option comparisons to singular option evaluation. In three studies, we demonstrate that at high percentage levels, “not get” part of the score is focused; therefore large scale magnitude decreases evaluation. Further, regulatory focus moderates the valance of the scale magnitude effect.
