Recall and Reality:
Psychologist Parses the Experience of Memory

When you think of a memory, are you experiencing the memory from a first-person point of view, as you experienced the situation originally? Or do you see yourself from outside, as if watching yourself in a movie?
MKaren L. Siedlecki, Ph.D., asserts that a memory recalled in the third person is an inaccurately reconstructed memory.
M“Unless you had an out-of-body experience, if you can see yourself while you reconstruct a memory, it is essentially a false memory,” Siedlecki said.
