Interrogative suggestibility delayed memory and self concept

Interrogative suggestibility delayed memory and self concept

Personality & Individual Differences 5(2): 203-210

The relationship between interrogative suggestibility as measured by the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scale (GSS) and variables related to memory recall and self-esteem was investigated. There were 30 Ss [subjects] tested twice 1 wk apart. After completing the GSS they were required to fill in a number of Semantic Differential scales relating to the concepts: myself as I am generally, myself during the experiment and the experimenter. Ss were generally more suggestible during the 2nd interview when their memory about the context of the interrogation context had deteriorated. The exception was that negative feedback appeared to have most effect on suggestibility and self-esteem the 1st time it was applied. Self-esteem related to competence and potency correlated significantly with suggestibility, especially during the 1st interrogative session. Perceptions of the experimenter were generally not significantly related to suggestibility.
