Serial Position Effect and Chunking

Serial Position Effect

  • People tend to remember the first few and last few items they are presented
  • Primary effect - increase likely hood of remembering the first few words
  • Recency effect - increase likely hood of remembering the last few words

  • Breaking things up into smaller groups to help you remember better
  • Smaller units make it easer to remember ex. Phone number and social security number follows _ _ _ - _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ pattern to help you remember
  • George A Miller developed the idea of The Magical Number 7 Plus or Minus 2; meaning that is the number of items most people can remember

Great job remembering that the Humanistic Perspective focuses on a person's ability to grow and reach their full potential by going through the levels of the Hierarchy of Needs. Keep up the good work!
