30 Who Does Evaluate Semantic Incongruent Cues Positively? Examining the Moderating Effect of Autotelic Need For Touch

In this study, we demonstrate that high-ANFT (Autotelic Need for Touch) consumers prefer semantic incongruent cues related to heaviness, which is not only activated physically but also visually and phonetically.
