  1. In the Pilot Study, no information about the background color was provided. In Experiments 1 and 2, color 1 represents least similar targets with 0–25% overlap in responses on the personality survey between the participant and target, color 2 represents 26–50% overlap, color 3 represents 51%-75% overlap, and color 4 represents the most similar targets with 76–100% overlap. Standard deviations are provided in brackets
