Deny the Voice Inside: Are Accessible Attitudes Always Beneficial?
Decades of prior literature suggests that accessible preferences are beneficial for coping with decision demands.

Our findings challenge commonly held assumptions about attitude function and implicate cross-cultural attitude theory.
