The Numerical Precision Effect: How Precision of Attribute Information Affects Adoption of New-Technology Products
We propose that that a precise numerical representation of a new-technology product’s specific attributes (39.42 vs. 40.00 megapixels) increases adoption of the product. This is because numerical precision boosts the buyer’s perceived control of product usage, which in turn reduces risks associated with the purchase of a new technology product.
