The Proteus effect describes the effect that people adapt their behavior to their virtual body. Thus, it is likely that people with a large avatar act more confidently in virtual reality than people with a small body. This effect can also be measured a short time after exposure.

If the effect can still be measured a short time later, and different avatars trigger different effects, can we create several of these effects simultaneously with an avatar change within a VR exposure?
