Sins of commission involve distorted recollection - Deepstash

Sins of commission involve distorted recollection

  • Misattribution. This sin is the correct recollection of information but connected to the wrong source. We may even think we are the source or may recall events that never happened.
  • Suggestibility. Our memory is vulnerable to misinformation caused by leading questions or deception from other people. This can lead to false memories.
  • Bias. Our current beliefs or feelings can retrospectively distort our memory.
  • Persistence. We want to forget, but our brain wants to hold on to the memory—for example, trauma, a mistake or an embarrassing moment.
