Data... the 'Hard' & 'soft' of It: Impact of Embodied Metaphors on Attitude Strength

Traditional research shows that strong attitudes result from elaboration. We posit that attitude strength can come about from non-elaborative processes as well, depending on certain embodied states. We show that incidental bodily experiences that influence one's perceptions of 'information quality' (e.g. 'hard vs soft' data) affect attitude strength.
