Elicitation Dependent Preference Reversals Over Consumer Goods

We demonstrate preference reversals over consumer goods in hypothetical and incentive compatible settings. Participants prefer a utilitarian good when indicating willingness-to-pay more than when choosing. This is due to participants relying more on their affective responses when making a choice. The effect is attenuated when participants are told to deliberate.
