Loftus and Palmer (6)


  • Get participants to observe staged but “real” accident.
  • Higher ecological validity – accounts for variables such as emotional response to situation.
  • Harder to replicate so lower reliability.
  • May not all have a clear view of incident.  Reduce validity.

  • Less participants reporting broken glass
