The article, Incidental Haptic Sensations Influence Social Judgments and Decisions, contains three paired experiments that test whether or not primary tactile sensations influence cognitive processing in either aspect-specific ways or metaphor specific-ways (Ackerman et al., 2010). In experiments 1 and 2, researchers hypothesized that variable weight unconsciously affects decision-making (Ackerman et al., 2010).). For experiment 1, the weight of a clipboard affected participants’ evaluation on job candidates’ resumes. For experiment 2, researchers measured how the weight of a clipboard affected decision-making in how much funding a project should receive (Ackerman et al., 2010). In experiments 3 and 4, researchers hypothesized that texture sensations, rough in contrast to smooth, would have an effect on the participants’ impressions and decision making. In experiment 3, participants completed a puzzle either with a rough surface or a smooth surface before completing a reading they had to form an impression on (Ackerman et al., 2010). Study 4 was similar except in lieu of a reading, participants played an Ultimatum game. The last studies, 5 and 6, tested whether or not touch sensations involving hardness would affect a person’s impression and their embodied cognitive processing (Ackerman et al., 2010). For study 5, participants evaluated an employee’s personality after feeling a soft blanket or hard block or wood, whereas, in study 6, participants made decisions while…
