Mind the Gap: How Smaller Numerical Differences Can Increase Product Attractiveness
We show that smaller numerical differences can be perceived larger, and consequently increase product attractiveness. We find that when the change in product’s numerical information is decimal-to-integer (3.4 to 4) rather than integer-to-integer (3 to 4), it reflects crossing a category threshold after several incremental tweaks, which boosts product appeal.
