How Eyes Pull on the Heartstrings: Averted Eye Gaze Enhances Narrative Transportation and Self-Brand Connection
This research investigates the influence of ad model’s gaze direction (direct vs. averted) on consumer self-brand connection. With three studies, we demonstrate (1)that averted (vs. direct) gaze enhances narrative transportation, (2)this drives self-brand connection, and (3)the visual effect hypothesized is moderated by the rational (vs. emotional) appeal of the advertisement.
