3I Revisiting How the Elongation Bias Affects Consumer Perceptions

We examine how the shape of packaging influences the elongation bias when consumers estimate the product volume. We find that the elongation bias is stronger for cylinder-shaped stimuli than for box-shaped stimuli. This research generalizes the salience-dimension model to differently shaped stimuli, which are found in the marketplace.
