Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between subjective memory beliefs, compliance, and response change in young, middle-aged, and older adults within a simulated forensic interview. Participants aged 18–85 (N = 101) watched a mock crime, were questioned, received feedback, and re-questioned. It was hypothesised that irrespective of the type of feedback delivered, participants with lower memory confidence would exhibit most compliance and response change. Significant associations were observed between subjective memory beliefs, compliance, and response change scores. Response change scores were negatively related to memory beliefs: task scores suppressed the direct effect of age. Participant subjective memory beliefs were negatively related to compliance scores. No significant association was observed between compliance and response change scores.
