Varying accounts of the same event

Varying accounts of the same event

Not all team members will have the same perspective when looking back on a completed project.

They may remember key issues differently, such as who came up with ideas, who helped save the day, and whether particular meetings or discussions occurred.

Egocentrism and self-serving biases

When people recall past events, they remember their own contributions to a project but only hear about other people's contributions. This results in people emphasising their own contributions to a project because they recall it better.

Even when you are aware of other people's contributions, you tend to show yourself as the hero while giving less credit to others than they deserve.

Your memory don't collect accurate accounts

To predict what will happen in a complex event, you have memory frameworks called schemas that help predict the possible sequence of events and why you do them. For example, when you go to a doctor's office, you need to check in at the front desk, sit in the waiting room, get called to the exam room, meet the doctor, and then pay your bill.

But these schemas influence your memory. You may credit a supervisor for an idea rather than their subordinate because you expected it more from a supervisor. You may also forget key details.

Memory intrusions

Memory intrusions

Your memory is dynamic. Every time you think about an event, you may influence your memory of that event. Things you hear later can get mixed in with your visual memories of the event.

While it may feel strange that your memory can be influenced, your mind just wants to know how to react to new situations.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
