The Influence of Shopping Lists on Visual Distraction

This research examines how shopping lists influence consumers’ susceptibility to impulsive purchases. We argue that making a shopping list activates an implemental mindset, which reduces the distraction by task-irrelevant products already at the level of visual attention. Results from an eye-tracking experiment support this hypothesis.
