This shows us how easily memories can be distorted, even without someone intentionally realizing. The following paragraphs will focus on two main reasons why eyewitness testimony is unreliable and how memory is distorted. One common reason that can lead to distorting an eyewitness testimony, is the observer's prior expectations also referred to as confirmation bias. Have you been aware that people tend to ignore evidence that goes against their beliefs or moral judgements? Confirmation biases are seen as a psychological phenomenon where people perceive, interpret and create new evidence that verify their pre existing thoughts (Kassin, Dror & Kukucka, 2013).
Therefore, I surmise that my need to project a certain image poses a plausible alternative to the stress-personality model, proposed by Keinan & Tal, in explaining my behavior during this game.

Based on developing client independence this approach attempts to remove therapists’ interpretation of behaviours associated with psychodynamic therapies (Burnard 2005), thus promoting growth and personal goal development. When used in therapeutic contexts metaphors can be both a powerful and sensitive form of language designed to bring about perceptual and/or behavioural change (Hutchings 1998). However, as a verbal component of the Person-Centred approach metaphors can enhance or inhibit a client’s progress. Through use of these verbal illustrations truths can be explored and understood by clients without the ‘glare’ of realism, removing stigmatisation and allowing clients to become more acute to their own perceptions (Hutchings 1998). It is at this time, where clients feel therapists are non-judgmental, goals and responsibilities are most likely to be instigated (Mallinson et al 1996).

Although the results to this study did not support that memories triggered emotional response were suppressed behaviorally through complete the experiment, I believe that this study lays a good foundation to lead to this helpful solution for many individuals suffering from intrusive thoughts. I think a nest step would be to survey a larger participant pool and to see if there is a way to enhance to experiment to maybe add in being able to suppress behavioral response to emotional memories, effectively helping to remove some stress on those who suffer from intrusive thoughts due to cognitive disorders. References Sakaki, M., Kuhbandner, C., Mather, M., & Pekrun, R. (2014). Memory suppression can help people 'unlearn' behavioral responses—But only for nonemotional memories.
For example, if a client came in stressed out, and I offered them the advice to take a sabbatical, they may respond that they cant. In this case my bias and points or privilege would be embarrassing, and what I was offering as advice, may seem patronizing. “A more helpful way to think about bias is simply as a tendency to think, act, or feel in particular ways. In some cases, these tendencies may guide individuals toward some accurate hypotheses and a quicker understanding of someone. In other situations, they may lead individuals to embarrassingly wrong assumptions” (Hays, 2016, p. 23).

According to Aronson, Wilson, and Akert (2013) prosocial behavior is defined as an act performed for the benefit of another person. Altruism is referred to as the want to help another individual even if it means no benefits, or possibly a cost, for the helper (Aronson, Wilson, & Akert, 2013). One particular factor, the bystander effect, has a profound impact on whether or not people help others. The bystander effect states that as the number of people who witness an emergency increases, the likelihood that any of those people will help decreases (Aronson et al., 2013). Processes associated with the bystander effect such as pluralistic ignorance, diffusion of responsibility, and victim effect all impact the likelihood of prosocial behavior, and can be exaggerated by social, cultural, and ‘self’ beliefs.

The participants who did not know about the framing effect made decisions based on the influence of the frames, but the participants who knew, probably were resistant towards the framing effect. The results found in the study were only significant for the positive frame, meaning people will choose an absolute gain over and absolute loss when the question is framed positively.
