Title: Information to Go: Fluency Enhances the Usability of Primed Information
Keywords: processing fluency
priming
hedonic marking
(judged) usability
Issue Date: 12-Oct-2009
Publisher: Elsevier
Abstract: Abstract We propose that over and above signaling a positive state of affairs, a fluency experience may be interpreted as a cue to the usability of the information at stake. Three experiments demonstrate this effect in a classic social psychological priming paradigm. Specifically, we show that when primed traits are processed fluently, they have effects independent of whether or not these traits are descriptively applicable to a subsequent target description. In Experiment 1, fluency was manipulated by rhyming. In Experiment 2 letter size of the primes was manipulated. Experiment 3 investigated underlying processes and aimed to control for a possible alternative explanation.
