4G Effectiveness of Labels: the Interaction Effect of Labels’ Color Scheme and Individual Differences in 'Lay Rationalism' on Preferences For Green Electricity

This research shows that the susceptibility to nudges via traffic light labels (vs. grayscale labels) is negatively related to the individuals’ “lay rationalism”, which describes a tendency to rely on reason (vs. feelings) when making decisions.
