Symmetric Dominance

We demonstrate a novel context effect, symmetric dominance, whereby preference between a high-quality high-price option and a low-quality low-price alternative can be influenced by the addition of a decoy option that is dominated by both alternatives (i.e., a low-quality high-price option). We provide robust evidence in five preregistered experimental studies.
