Selective memory is the use of memory, which is selective to the point of reinforcing a bias, belief or desired outcome. Selective memory is common. Everyone remembers differently certain events or situations. Psychologists and scientists are still examining exactly how memory works in the human brain. Emotions play an important role in what we remember and how well we can remember. Also, adrenaline is thought to be a component. This explains why the details are remembered much easier of an exciting event(childhood vacation) than one that was uninteresting(commute to work). Emotional dysregulation or emotional regulation disorder refers to personality disorder people suffer which is extremes of emotion. Individuals with personality disorders experience vastly inconsistent memory functioning do to the unregulated emotional highs and lows. Also, this may explain why some who have personality disorders experience dissociation(when a person's emotions and feelings can override a person's recollection of facts). OUT OF THE FOG
