Inside Out: Product Essence Is Perceived to Be Concentrated in the Center of a Group of Products

When multiple identical products are arranged as a group, consumers perceive greater product essence at the center (vs. edge) of the group. As such, products from the center (vs. edge) are perceived to be more effective and more likely to be chosen when the product’s essence is valued (vs. devalued).
