Abstract
The purpose of this study is to shed light on the ways in which individuals respond to the naturalisic fallacy and whether information treatments can help to counter it. More broadly, this research will deepen our understanding of the ways in which individuals form opinions towards new technologies that may conflict with cultural intuitions.
