Just Remember: the Right Reminder That Leads to Actions

Across four experiments, we compare the effects of two semantically equivalent expressions (“remember” vs. “don’t forget”) commonly used in reminders. We demonstrate that “remember” (vs. don’t forget) facilitates action, and that this effect is mediated by a promotion focus and moderated by perceived urgency.
