Abstract

The research aims to answer the question of whether it is possible to distort one's memories of his/her choice by reading other people's comments and estimations after the choice has already been made. The experiment included three stages. In the first stage, participants assessed the intelligence (IQ) of women in photos. In the second stage, participants read comments and assessments of the women's IQs made by other people. Participants chose the most appropriate comments and assessments and also left their own comments. For some photos, we presented estimations and comments that supported the choice the participant had already made. For other photos, we presented estimations and comments opposite to the choice made by the participant. Some photos were not presented in the second stage at all. In the third stage, participants were again presented with all photos seen in the first stage of the experiment. They had to recall their initial estimation of the women's IQ. The results showed that participants changed their memories when they read other people's comments and estimations that opposed their initial judgments. Our data indicate that memory distortions can occur indirectly, without real social interaction and social pressure.
