Merely Accessible: Products May Be Effective Without Actual Consumption
We find that mere access to a product (without consuming it) can yield the same effect as consuming it. Participants with access to coffee were faster at a reaction-time task; those without access were slower. Participants with access to a dictionary solved more word puzzles; those without access solved fewer puzzles.
