Occupational Memory Practice and Memory Beliefs with Age
Huet, Nathalie; Marquie, Jean-Claude; Bacon, Elisabeth
Educational Gerontology, v36 n7 p622-637 2010
This study examined effects of intensive memory use during one's profession on metamemory beliefs. Fifty-one actors and 60 controls aged from 20 to 73 years were compared with the Metamemory Inventory in Adulthood. Both intensive job-related memory practice and younger age were associated with stronger memory self-efficacy beliefs. Irrespective of age, actors reported a higher stability of their memory with time and a higher controllability. No significant effect was found on metamemory knowledge. These findings show the relevance of the dissociation between metamemory knowledge and metamemory beliefs. Both memory practicing during occupation and age appear to influence only metamemory beliefs. (Contains 3 tables.)
