Earliest Childhood Memories

What’s your earliest memory?

Memorial University researchers have reviewed decades of data to determine that most people have their earliest memory from age two-and-a-half, when previous findings suggested it was actually age three-and-a-half. The researchers say this is because people often think they were older than they actually were in early memories due to something called “telescoping,” or the tendency to “look through a lens” when thinking back to an event that happened a long time ago. A researcher says, “The more remote a memory is, the telescoping effect makes you see it as closer.”
