Abstract

Recent evidence indicates that judgements about the quality of one's own childhood memory can be influenced experimentally, for example by manipulating case of retrieval. This has led to the suggestion that judgements of poor memory made by clients in therapy may not be reliable, We therefore investigated whether individuals who judge themselves to have poor memory for their childhood do in fact score worse on a standardized test of autobiographical memory. Matched groups of individuals reporting poor and normal memory for childhood were administered the Autobiographical Memory Interview. Consistent with a previous study of neurological patients, subjective judgements were associated with performance on both personal semantic memory and autobiographical incident memory.
