To minimize the distortion caused by variations in "recallability," managers must take a very disciplined approach to making forecasts and judging probabilities and should 1) carefully examine all assumptions to ensure they are not unduly influenced by their memory and improperly give more weight to recent events, 2) get actual statistics whenever possible, and avoid being guided by impressions and dramatic events, and 3) try and recall instances of events that are not so memorable.
Psychologist Marigold Linton cites research showing that positive memories are better recalled than negative ones, but that dramatic negative events (the Till trial) can result in "superior recallability" because the event is exceptionally emotional and tied to personal recollection.
