The links below are to data from various studies conducted in my laboratory. When possible, I will post complete data sets here.
- Data from two national surveys assessing what people believe about how memory works. The first was published in 2011 and included a national telephone survey conducted by polling firm SurveyUSA. The second was published in 2012 and included a national survey conducted using Amazon Mechanical Turk. The second paper compared results from the two surveys (which were roughly comparable). In both cases, people hold beliefs about memory that diverge from expert scientific consensus. The data file will open as a GoogleDoc, but if you download it, it will be an Excel file [Simons & Chabris, 2011] [Simons & Chabris, 2012] [Data File]
