Attitudes Based on Feelings: Fixed Or Fleeting?

Companies measure consumers’ opinions to predict future judgments and behavior. However, whereas some attitudes are fixed, others are fleeting. Across six longitudinal studies and linguistic analysis of 80,000 Yelp reviews, the more an attitude was based on emotion, the longer-lasting that attitude. Moreover, consumers appear unaware of this connection.
