What Makes Difficulties Desirable?

The exact mechanisms behind the value of desirable difficulties are still being debated.

  • Bjork argues that the benefits come from the difference between storage strength and retrieval strength in memory.
  • In his theory, what we learn is never erased from our minds.
  • Instead, we forget things as our ability to retrieve them becomes weaker through competition with other memories.

This theory says that successful access to hard-to-recall memory boosts retrieval strength more than if the memory was easier to access.
