View Full Version : People's memories for political events

Hi, I'm a research student from the UK and at the moment I'm studying how people's memories differ for current events. I'm running a questionnaire on the subject - it's really interesting and doesn't take long at all!

Thanks in advance!

Survey is loading slowwww as hell from the US and frequently timing out. Just FYI

I'm curious what your results are here though. My anecdotal evidence would indicate that the primary factor in distorted memory comes not from the political view, but from the strength of an allegiance to a political view.

Also, your questioning is incredibly constrained. I can't even answer the "would you rate your political views as..." question with the options provided.

holy crap get someone better at photoshopping

edit: and jesus fucking christ fix those file names... I wouldn't have even noticed this if I didn't have to manually load the content on the page that was timing out

the forced liberal vs conservative dichotomy on this survey was incredibly disappointing. :(

Oh, goddamnit. I was going to tell you that i don't get much UK news here until i realized that i had taken the wrong test.
I am a goofball.
Does it skew your data if i redo it, @ukresearcher (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/members/4651-ukresearcher) ?
i just took it, if that will help you know which one it was.
