Every second person “remembers” events that were not
British researchers from Warwick University found that more than 50% of people “remember” events that never happened.
In a study conducted by Dr. Kimberly Wade, was attended by over 400 people. They were told fictional stories supposedly from their lives. It turned out that 30% of participants are able to clearly “remember” what they had not happened, and even remember some details. Another 23% reported that “remember” imaginary events in one degree or another.
Scientists came to the conclusion that it can be very difficult to determine when one remembers the real events of the past, and when wrong even in a controlled experiment, but in real life. While false memories influence judgments and decisions.
