Modes of Enjoyment For Multifaceted Experiences

This research examines how the processing style of multifaceted experiences affects evaluations. When using a constructive mode (seeing components as interwoven), evaluations are greater than either of the individual components. However, when using a deconstructive mode (seeing components independently), evaluations are lower than that of the most liked component.
