This is not the only area of research to be dented by science’s ‘replication crisis’ 😉 Failed replication attempts have cast doubt on findings in areas from cancer biology to economics 👍 However, so many social priming findings have been challenged that it is now almost impossible to believe the field has ever existed. “I don’t know a replicable finding. It’s not that there isn’t one, but I can’t name it,” says Brian Nosek, a psychologist at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, who has led big replication studies. “I’ve gone from full believer to full sceptic,” adds Michael Inzlicht, a psychologist at the University of Toronto, Canada, and an associate editor at the journal Psychological Science. 
In recent years, some of the more remarkable findings about priming that emerged in the ‘90s have been called into question. Other fundamental principles of the phenomenon were not only proven but also used to enhance human performance and provide psychological treatment. One team of researchers used problem-solving games to priming 583 second graders with three problems per week, and they improved their academic performance. One group also tested priming in therapy patients suffering from social anxiety. The primed group had significantly greater success with managing their symptoms than did the control.

When thinking directly about what primes a brand’s subconscious connections, we tend to make the assumption that a person is in a particular emotional disposition or need state or in a particular context. This is a potential indicator that a person may already be attracted to our brand if they’re in such a state. However, we can also think more deeply about priming this actual emotional state or actual context so that people will be more disposed and more receptive to a brand’s subconscious associations – we will call this indirect brand priming – creating a disposition for active brand engagement – giving your brand a contextual head start.

Lianne Rosado says at psychology.iresearchnet.comPriming can be described as the act of gaining greater accessibility to an item or person (or events) and related materials and behaviourss. Priming is a phenomenon that is enormously influential in people’s everyday lives, yet people are typically unaware of its operation and impact. If you are reminded to call your mum every time you walk by a telephone, it is priming. You can blame priming if middle-aged ladies feel nervous after seeing Desperate Housewives. Priming is a particularly important skill. Important in social psychology because of the inherent complexity of social information processing— when many interpretations and behavioral options are available, the accessibility determined by priming can constrain perception, cognition, and action.
