What are your emotions about this memory? Is this memory about a relationship? Is this memory about an enduring theme or unresolved conflict in your life?

6Self-defining memory1. It is at least one year old.2. It is a memory from your life that you remembered very clearly and that still feels important to you even as you think about it.3. It is a memory about an important enduring theme, issue, or conflict from your life. It is a memory that helps explain who you are as an individual and might be the memory you would tell someone else if you wanted that person to understand you in a profound way.4. It is a memory linked to other similar memories that share the same theme or concern.5. It may be a memory that is positive or negative, or both, in how it makes you feel. The only important aspect is that it leads to strong feelings.6. It is a memory that you have thought about many times. It should be familiar to you like a picture you have studied or a song (happy or sad) you have learned by heart.7. How many years ago did this happen? (number of years ago, not your age at the time). Self-defining memory, part 2Use the rating scale 0= zero to 6= most to rate the emotions you feel on recalling this memory.

Bob Daemmrich/ The Image WorksBob Daemmrich/ The Image WorksFrank Wartenberg/ Picture Press/ Corbis1011Modifications to the Three-Stage ModelSome information skips the first two stages and enters long-term memory automatically.Since we cannot focus on all the sensory information received, we select information that is important to us and actively process it into our working memory. A newer understanding of short-term memory that involves conscious, active processing of incoming auditory and visual-spatial information, and of information retrieved from long-term memory.
