So selective false memories might not be all downside, if you see what I mean...

DID or alternate personalities do appear to also be paranormal possessions. I was given a tape of myself speaking german in outpatient therapy. Another was I was said to have been speaking and old form of Chinese while in some type of verbal chat room. More delusions and false memories? The german tape was stolen by an alleged friend of mine.

Even though the report of the study reflects a straightforward approach, the premise seems to be a set up for confirmation bias.
A report earlier this summer highlighted the research indicating that memories don't function so much as a video recording of the event in question, but rather as a chain of memories leading from the first memory of the event, through all subsequent memories to the memory in question at any given point in time.

Do you have a link to the report?
Sounds highly interesting.
P.S. I thought you might be interested in this thread, too.
(If you are not, simply disregard it. )
