Embodied Gentleness Effect: the Influence of Hand Movements on Food Preferences
We demonstrate that hand movement gentleness shapes consumer preferences toward food with different haptic hardness and that this embodied gentleness effect is robust across variations in hand movement priming (temporary or chronic) and haptic cues (verbal or physical). Moreover, this embodiment effect is moderated by individual differences in self-monitoring.
