When Seeing Many Types of Wine Makes You More Sensitive to Technological Threats: Unrelated, Prior Categorizations and Reactions to Change

We document a novel effect with regards to change detection: reactions to change are systematically affected by the categorizations encountered in an unrelated, prior task. We find that unrelated, prior exposure to narrow (vs. broad) categorizations improves change detection abilities and leads to stronger reactions to change.
