Understanding the Science of Warnings

Understanding the Science of Warnings

Warnings and threats are commonly used in health campaigns and policies, with the belief that inducing fear will get people to act. However, research shows that warnings have limited impact on behavior. When we are scared, our most common response is to shut down and try to eliminate negative feelings. This process can make us feel more resilient and sometimes cause warnings to have a boomerang effect.

The Boomerang Effect of Warnings

The Boomerang Effect of Warnings

Warnings may not always have the desired effect on behavior. Sometimes, they can have a boomerang effect, making people feel more resilient and less likely to change their behavior. Rationalization is one way that people may resist warnings. For example, someone may tell themselves that their grandparent smoked and lived to be 90, so they have good genes and nothing to worry about. This process can lead to people feeling more resistant to warnings.
