This study evaluates the existence of a phenomenon of asymmetric perception in consumers with regards to the degree of incompleteness of displays in retail outlets. A sample of 159 right-handed individuals was recruited for a laboratory experiment that involved the presentation of a series of images which compared two displays, one to the left and the other to the right of the observer. The subjects were asked to identify, in free-viewing conditions, as rapidly and accurately as possible, which display was more incomplete. Our test revealed that individuals tend to perceive the display on the left to be more incomplete, even though the correct answers to the task were actually distributed in an equal manner between left and right. This bias towards the left, that occurred independently of the modality of presentation of the displays, is consistent with the predictions of the Theory of selective activation of the right hemisphere of the brain.
Keywords: Asymmetric perception, brain laterality Theory, display incompleteness, free-viewing approach; positioning of display, virtual aisle.
