The Impact of Implicit Rate of Change on Arousal and Subjective Ratings

Five studies demonstrate that implicitly implied rates of change–color saturation of print/television advertisements, size of a consumer product, panning of sound in a television commercial–remain consciously unnoticed but predictably bolster the subjective ratings of consumers (e.g., product liking, willingness-to-pay, likelihood of purchasing). State-level arousal mediates the effect.
