In this study, smokers at public events read brochures containing brief gain- or loss-framed smoking-cessation messages. Individuals lower in need for cognition had greater intention to quit after reading a gain-framed message than after reading a loss-framed message—a finding consistent with our predictions—whereas framing did not affect the persuasiveness of messages among people higher in NFC.
