K11. Effects of Emotional Vs. Rational Thinking on Consumer Responses to Verbal Precision

We define verbal precision and examine consumer responses to more and less verbally precise communication. Results suggest that emotionally (vs. rationally) oriented recipients are more sensitive to verbally precise messages. For these consumers, higher verbal precision increases perceived conversational cooperativeness of the source and results in more positive product attitudes.
