Abstract / Summary
One of the fascinating things about people who have had a misattribution memory is the confidence in which they will defend their recollection. Building upon his anecdote about memory researcher Donald Thompson, who was wrongfully accused of a brutal rape due to a misattribution, Daniel Schacter proposes a memory test. Executed like a trained showman, Schacter challenges the audience’s own confidence in a demonstration of mental fallibility. You can follow along at home, and we’d be curious to know how you do.
