Abstract

We examine how persuasive messages can be used to promote and encourage healthy eating based on personality. After a personality assessment, participants assessed the persuasiveness of messages designed using Cialdini's principles of persuasion. The results of our study indicate that 'Authority' messages were most influential. In addition, we observed that positively framed messages were significantly more persuasive than negatively framed ones. Furthermore, personality had a significant influence on the best message type, with agreeable subjects being more inclined to persuasion than others.
