‘Deception At a Distance’: How and When Does Temporal Distance Affect Persuasion Knowledge Activation?

Consistent with construal level theory, we present results from an experiment demonstrating that the temporal distance of a purchase decision can affect persuasion knowledge activation when the topic of the persuasive statement is congruent with the construal level. This interaction is then shown to have adverse effects on brand evaluations that are mediated by persuasion knowledge activation through an automatic process.
