Abstract

The term question-behavior effect (QBE) refers to the idea that asking individuals about their beliefs and intentions regarding a particular behavior may change that behavior. Two recent systematic reviews (Rodrigues et al., 2015; Wood et al., 2015) set out to assess whether the QBE was a viable intervention for social policy and public health, i.e., can behavior change be brought about just by asking questions? The reviews came to different conclusions. This commentary aims to highlight commonalities and differences between the two reviews and concludes that the case for QBE in public health is currently limited.
