The Secrecy Effect: Secret Consumption Polarizes Product Evaluations

Well-liked products received more positive evaluations, and disliked products received more negative evaluations, compared to evaluations in non-secret conditions. We identify preoccupation and attitude polarization as the primary drivers for these outcomes.
