We explored if shared likes and shared dislikes make symmetric contributions to a sense of similarity. Participants rated foods and learned if others shared their preference for a food they liked or disliked. Participants inferred more similarity when they both liked a food than when they both disliked a food, suggesting that shared likes create a greater sense of similarity than shared dislikes.
