I, Me, Mine: the Effect of the Explicitness of Self-Anchoring on Consumer Evaluations
This research shows that implicitly-primed self-anchoring creates a halo of positivity around objects for which consumers receive only positive information, and consumers repel objects for which they receive positive and negative information. However, when consumers explicitly self-anchor using an imagination task, they resolve discrepancies in messaging by dissociating negative information.
