Smile: You Haven't Seen This Before! Positivity, False Familiarity, and Consumer Behavior
This paper presents a meta-analysis of 27 studies, identifying a robust, reliable, and valid small-to-medium effect, whereby positivity triggers false inferences of familiarity. The meta-analysis mines these studies to suggest a process-based explanation for this effect, and also identifies an important boundary condition. Implications for consumer behavior are discussed.
