We often jumble up the information, a common error known as misattribution, when we recognize someone incorrectly or swap pieces of information.

The way to handle this is to write down important details on the fly, or aid recall by recording voice notes or clicking pictures/videos.

On a side note, do not share any personal information on the phone or the internet, as many scamsters exploit this failure to recall, and try to gain information.

  2. “suppression” - our ability to ignore the things that don’t.
