Does a Blurry Background Make a High Roller? the Effects of Blurry Versus Sharp Backgrounds on Consumers’ Risk-Taking Behavior
Six experiments document that a blurry background works as a distance cue and activates high-level construal, thereby increasing risk-taking. By showing that blurriness can elevate construal level and promote risk-taking, our research contributes to construal level theory, risk-taking, and aesthetics literatures, and provides practical implications for advertisers and online marketers.
