This kind of report will be based upon impression formation. A study was conducted to verify if the purchase of information shown about a hypothetical person into a participant has an effect on their impression final first sight of that person.

The founder of exploration into this field was Asch (1946), who was worried about the principles lurking behind forming thoughts. Asch (1946) conducted a report where, he had two groupings, in which equally were given email lists of words in different requests according where group the participants were assigned to.
