Seeing Goals in Products: Effects of Goal Visualization on Product Valuation

We show that a product (e.g., curvy bottle) which merely helps consumers visualize an end-state (e.g., toned physique) creates an illusory perception that the goal is easier to attain, which subsequently, increases the perceived value of the product. The effect is attenuated when actual goal progress is made.
