There are many points
in our daily life where we might be mistaken about things or have
cause to doubt them. As an exercise, I want you to think about the
types of mistake that are possible and what that mistake is due
to. So, for instance, I might think that today is Tuesday, when
it is actually Thursday, which I could consider a lapse of memory.
Set your answers out in a table like this:
|Thinking it is Tuesday
||Lapse of Memory
(42 + 59 = 111)
Try and cover as many
different types of mistake as you can think of (there is no need
to list more than one example for each type - confusing Tuesday
and Thursday is an example of faulty memory, so there is no need
to list other examples).
Once you have done this,
move on to the next section.
