A Simple Step to Go Beyond Present: How Visual Entropy Cues Influence Temporal Focus and Consumer Behavior
In the present research we explore how the degree of disorder (entropy) in visuals can influence customers’ both temporal focus and product evaluations. Across seven studies, we found that high (low) entropy visuals make people focus on past (future), and thereby, elicit more positive evaluations for past (future) related products.
