Abstract

The purpose of this study was to test the strength of the machine heuristic; specifically when suspicion is primed in a message receiver concerning the veracity of information from a robot delivering news. Results demonstrate that low suspicion led to higher credibility evaluations, which consequently increased behavioral intentions. Findings are discussed in light of the MAIN model.
