How does your personality affect your memory

To what extend is your memory of an event influenced by your personality?
We hypothesise that forgetting details about a specific crime-related event can be partially explained by the individual personality type.

The Study will consist of two sessions, both to be completed online. The first session starts with some questions. Next, you are asked to watch a short crime video and answer some more questions referring to the content. 48 hours later, you are requested to come complete the second session. You will again be asked to fill in several questionnaires related to the video.

NOTE: The nature of these videos may be slightly uncomfortable, but they are unlikely to elicit any form of distress. Please inform the researcher immediately if you experience any form of distress as you have the right to withdraw at any time, without penalty.

Ethics committee approval: 2018/228
