How One-Step (Vs. Gradual) Presentation of Change Affects Its Perceived Magnitude - the Role of Identity

Overall change in a stimulus is perceived to be larger when presented in one step vs. gradually, but only when the changing stimulus has an underlying identity (e.g. a person or brand). Our findings suggest this is because one-step (vs. gradual) change causes stronger perceived disruption of the underlying identity.
