Visualizing Price Magnitude: How Slider Scales Change Willingness-To-Pay

Although organizations use textboxes and slider scales interchangeably to elicit consumers’ willingness-to-pay, seven experiments demonstrate that slider scales elicit more extreme responses than textboxes. This effect is due to recalibration of the mental number line with respect to one anchor (textbox) versus two (slider scale) depending on response format.
