The Early Bird Gets the Worm: the Effect of Habituation on the Effectiveness of Counter-Attitudinal Appeals

In a lab study and a field study, the current research finds that counter-attitudinal persuasive appeals can have a greater impact on behavior after people habituate to them. This flies in the face of current practice, which typically involves making counter-attitudinal appeals as in-your-face and attention-grabbing as possible.
