The Influence of Product Anthropomorphism on Comparative Judgment Strategy

A series of five experiments show that anthropomorphism of product alternatives increases the chance that consumers use an absolute judgment strategy (vs. dimension-by-dimension strategy) in comparative judgment. This effect is mediated by consumers’ perception of each anthropomorphized alternative as an integrated entity (vs. a bundle of attributes).
