I Like to Move It Move It: Introducing Regulatory Fit From Body Movement

In three experiments, we demonstrate how consumers’ physical movements (versus stasis) lead to regulatory fit and thereby increase product valuation for consumers with predominant locomotion (versus assessment) orientations. We start with monotonous body movements (Studies 1 and 2), and extend to consider movements unrelated to the product use (Study 3).
