MERE-THOUGHT POLARIZATION

was first proposed by U.S. psychologist Abraham Lesser and it implies that simply thinking about an attitude can lead to an immediate polarization in the direction of that attitude.

MERE-THOUGHT POLARIZATION: "The mere-thought polarization concept explains that the mere thought of an attitude towards a specific subject, can automatically dictate the direction of the response."
