Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on psychology paper: memory. So when the link between the concept, the word and the visual representation of the word is weak, we tend to find difficulty in remembering the entire word even if we remember everything connected to it. You can see this happening in quiz shows. For example, there is a question like, what is the smallest fish in the world. The contestant can remember that the word starts with a letter P but can’t remember the entire word, which is Paedocypris. And because the contestant can’t answer the question, he loses a point, or even the entire game. This sin of memory, most often, causes embarrassment, especially when the person forgets a name at the point of introducing him to another person. Misattribution means misattributing the source of the memory. This happens when we remember seeing an event when in fact we only read it. This is also called a binding error when we incorrectly link a content of the memory with its context (Begley). This happens when we unconsciously transfer a memory from one form to another – like reading it and seeing it. This sin of memory impacts me negatively as it makes me an incompetent source. When I say that I heard a trivia from the teacher but in fact I only heard it from a classmate, it makes me a useless source since I am saying something that didn’t happen in reality.
