Autobiographical Memory for Aggression

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

How do people remember their own acts of aggression? Many of us would be motivated to present our behavior in a favorable light (for example, "I was provoked"). The aim of this study was to investigate—in an experimental setting—factors that influence the accurate recall of autobiographical aggression. We measured subjects’ memory for their behavior on an aggressive task. Subjects tended to under-remember their own aggression; memory distortion was influenced by provocation and narcissism. Because people rely on their memories to help decide how to behave, holding distorted memories of aggression has important implications for ongoing behavior.
