1) False Memory: Is it Live or Is it Memorex? Take the Memory Test!
2) Test Your MEMORY. Please follow the instructions throughout the article carefully.
Here’s a memory test. Look at these words. (At the very end of the article, you can take the memory test. Just look at them now then read the rest of the article before you do the test.)
…Hey, have you ever been to Disneyland or Disneyworld? Remember when you shook hands with Bugs Bunny? (Or your kids or watching one of your friends or some people you didn’t know shake hands with Bugs?) Bugs was always very cool I thought. Now, if you’ve never been to Disney then of course you don’t remember this but you got a clear picture in your mind of meeting Bugs because you’ve seen TV footage of Disney and you have seen Bugs. So you get the idea.
What is really interesting is that Bugs isn’t at Disney. Bugs is a Warner Brothers character like Elmer Fudd. Disney has Mickey Mouse and Pluto and Goofy and all those guys. You didn’t see Bugs at Disney. I pulled a fast one on your memory. I confess. I DID meet Bugs at Marriott’s Great America in Gurnee, Illinois when the park opened there in 1975. I was the first visitor ever there. Met Mr. Marriott and everything. Now it’s a Six Flags or something. But Bugs lived there not at Disney….but you know what is interesting? LOTS OF PEOPLE have vivid memories of meeting Bugs at Disney after being presented the same false suggestions I just offered you. About 1/3 of people who are suggested with a completely false memory, just like I did with you, believe that “memory.” Sometimes more, sometimes less depending on how the “memory” is presented. (Fake photography, verbal suggestion, written word) Now, that does not mean that it’s the same 1/3 that can experience false memory. A lot of it has to do with who has been to Disney and who hasn’t. The point is that it’s pretty easy to implant false memory. Would you be good enough to drop me a note and let me know what happened in your mind when I asked if you met Bugs at Disney? Thanks!
Now, you might think that this is an exceptional case. How about this: Elizabeth Loftus (one of the world’s leading memory researchers) performed a fascinating experiment. She showed a film to a group of people. The film was about a traffic accident. After the film she asked the group, “How fast was the white sports car going when it passed the barn while traveling along the country road?” Several days later when witnesses to the film were quizzed about what they’d seen, 17 percent were sure they spied a barn, though there weren’t any buildings in the film at all. In a related experiment subjects were shown a collision between a bicycle and an auto driven by a brunette, then afterward were peppered with questions about the “blonde” at the steering wheel. Not only did they remember the nonexistent blond vividly but when they were shown the video a second time they could hardly believe what they were seeing. It was nothing like they remembered it. Loftus concluded that hints leaked to us by our fellow humans override the scene were sure we’ve seen with our own eyes.
In another Loftus experiment done in the 1970s the film is different. The people view slides of a pedestrian-auto accident. They also see a slide of a red Datsun at a yellow Yield sign. The group was asked, “Did you see the other car pass the Datsun while it was stopped at the Yield sign?” The biased recall group however was asked an even more biased question: “Did you see another car pass the Datsun at the stop sign?” Later most of the biased group remembered a Stop sign instead of a Yield sign! The verbal information again leaked into the visual recall. Suggestion changes perception. And can easily create false memories.
If you’ve been utilizing hypnosis for any period of time you already know this and use all of this information to the benefit of your client. Your client will regress to some pretty bizarre stuff that never happened quite the way they think it did and they will tell you with God as their witness that it did happen and in their MIND it did happen but just because they took you “there” doesn’t mean much, as you’ve probably discovered!
REMEMBER THE MEMORY TEST? Stop. Please don’t look at the words. Just write the words down that you remember on a piece of paper. Quick. Go do it now before you forget them. You can score the test at the end of the E-zine! Keep reading.
Now write the words down that you remember from the list at the top of the E-zine. Did you write the word “sleep” down? 1/3 of all participants do and that’s good because that’s how memory works when people are paying attention. The funny thing is that “sleep” isn’t on the list. Go look and see how you did. Memory is a very interesting thing…and we are going to have much more to say about it in the coming months.
