There is no evidence that the mistaken accounts of either person were malicious or intentionally false. Studies of memories of traumatic events consistently show how common it is for errors to creep into confidently recalled accounts, according to cognitive psychologists.
“It’s pretty normal,” said Deryn Strange, an associate psychology professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “That’s the hard thing to get our heads around. It’s frightening how easy it is to build in a false memory.”
Another example of false memories I pointed out previously on this forum: https://www.metabunk.org/threads/th...is-not-a-haarp-installation.3158/#post-112499
The video I linked to in that post has been taken down but here is a working video. Skip to 2:55.
This actually ties in with my experience, as I do not remember key events from Afghanistan, yet my friends do. Similarly I remember parts that they do not.Nearly half of all law enforcement officers involved in deadly force encounters experience 'missing frames', that is significant chunks of memory lost from their event. Dr Alexis Artwohl found that 47% of officers in a gunfight experience memory loss of at least part of their actions. Dr Dave Klinger's research found that if you fire only one or two shots, you usually remember the number. But as you fire more rounds, there is an increasing tendency to forgrt how many you shot.
Dr Artwohl says that memories of high-risk situations are often like a series of snapshots, some vivid, some blurry and some even missing.
This is significant, as CTs are often fixated on a single point, such as what Barry Jennings said about seeing dead bodies in WTC7, or 'people heard explosions', or 'many reports of shots from the grassy-knoll', and use this small human frailty as the cornerstone of their entire case.According to Dr Artwohl, 21% of police officers involved in shootings experience memory distortions. In other words, more that one in five officers in a gunfight remembered something that did not happen.
If hardened soldiers and highly trained police officers are walking away from combat situations believing something happened that did not, might citizens and suspects also believe with all their heart that something happened that really did not? You bet.
Congratulations!We're planning our wedding for next year
Having visited the hall earlier this year and looked at photos I would have sworn the ceiling that we are planning on attaching bunting, fair lights etc to was open with exposed trusses a bit like this:
Do you think your memory was warped by looking at other photos? There are pages that show that location and others, and you might have looked at a similar image
