Effect of Attribute Change on Preference Modification

This paper uses dual-systems of processing to explain why people, who detect an attribute change in their choice set, choose the option with the highest (lowest) absolute change when the change is positive (negative). Three studies provide support for the proposed account and reject other alternative explanations.
