3 Sins Of Distortion

The 3 sins of distortion are a subgrouping of what is known as the 7 sins of memory. The first is misattribution or confusing the source of information. This can be mistaking your source of information such as remembering information from a dream as though it is reality. The second is suggestability. This is how an adult or child can take a leading question (e.g. Who raped you?) and then create a scenario from that question. The third is bias. These are memories that are colored by personal attitudes and prejudices.
