Abstract

Drawing on the construal level theory, we replicated and extended Krishna and Morrin's (2008) finding that consumers evaluate water quality to be higher when they drink from a hard cup. The results of our two experiments showed that when they touched a hard object, consumers tended to judge a product as of higher quality when they imagined a near future goal. Conversely, the hardness had no association in the distant future condition.
