Hindsight bias can be considered a type of memory distortion. In this article we compare hindsight bias to two other types of memory distortion, the misinformation effect and the experimental creation of false autobiographical beliefs and memories. We underline the similarities in the procedures used to elicit these phenomena and propose that the results favor a reconstructive explanation of all three. We also discuss possible mechanisms that might subsume them.

Abstract

Hindsight bias can be considered a type of memory distortion. In this article we compare hindsight bias to two other types of memory distortion, the misinformation effect and the experimental creation of false autobiographical beliefs and memories. We underline the similarities in the procedures used to elicit these phenomena and propose that the results favor a reconstructive explanation of all three. We also discuss possible mechanisms that might subsume them.
