NOMINAL REALISM

50

describes a tendency for adults and children to refuse objects they believe are brandished with symbols which are not an intrinsic part of the object itself, such as faulty labelling or incorrect labelling.

NOMINAL REALISM: "Individuals tend to ignore or refuse products or objects which are incorrectly labelled or labelled suspiciously, for example butter which is labelled poisonous, this is the nominal realism effect."
