When Less Is More: Counter-Attitudinal Appeals Are More Effective When They Are Ignored
The current research proposes a novel, counter-intuitive path to increase the effectiveness of counter-attitudinal appeals.

This result contrasts sharply with the common practice of using in-your-face, attention-grabbing appeals.
