Can Implicit Theory Influence Construal Level?
Results of three studies demonstrate that an individual’s implicit theory (incremental vs. entity) influences the level of construal at which people process information (abstract vs. concrete). Holding an incremental (vs. entity) theory produces greater cognitive flexibility which in turn leads to a more abstract level of information construal.
