O3. the Effect of Numeric Information on Product Evaluation

This research proposes that precise number will polarize product evaluation, making the judgment of positive product information more positive, and negative information more negative. It happens because processing precise number is more arousing, and the heightened arousal leads to evaluative extremity. Three studies were conducted to test our predictions.
