The Role of Self-Regulatory Focus in the Effectiveness of Actor’S Vs. Observer’S Visual Perspective

Two experiments indicated that when an actor’s (observer’s) perspective is used to portray a product in an ad, promotion- (prevention-) focused individuals report more favorable product evaluations compared to prevention- (promotion-) focused individuals. The results were interpreted in light of regulatory visual perspective fit, assessed by internal vs. external thoughts.
