The misinformation effect occurs when a witness views an event, is exposed to misleading post-event information, and remembers some misleading details as having occurred in the original event. The present study examined the effect of receiving post-event information and being tested in different languages on bilingual participants’ susceptibility t...

Good self-control has been linked to adaptive outcomes such as better health, cohesive personal relationships, success in the workplace and at school, and less susceptibility to crime and addictions. In contrast, self-control failure is linked to maladaptive outcomes. Understanding the mechanisms by which self-control predicts behavior may assist i...

... Multiple meta-analyses (e.g., Dang, 2018;Dang et al., 2017) and large scale experimental studies (e.g., Dang et al., 2021;Garrison et al., 2019) have supported the ego depletion effect by showing that initial exertion of self-control impairs subsequent self-regulatory performance. However, other serious research endeavours have failed to replicate the ego depletion effect (e.g., Hagger et al., 2016;Vohs et al., 2021). According to many scholars, this replication crisis is primarily due to conceptual and methodological limitations that impede the ability of the current dual-task paradigm to generate the ego depletion effect in the first place (de Ridder et al., 2018;Forestier et al., 2022). ...
... Another important topic deserving of further attention and key to the practical conduct of interviews with likely sizeable implications for the social context of the interview concerns the use of interpreters (see Goodman-Delahunty & Howes, 2019;Mulayim et al., 2019;Tipton, 2021). Associated complex topics include the conduct of interviews in a second language (Calvillo & Mills, 2020;Filipovic & Abad Vergara, 2018), and impact of sociolinguistic differences relevant to culture (see, e.g., work on Australian Aboriginal witnesses; Eades, 2000Eades, , 2004. Finally, it is important to avoid dissociating culture from political, historical, and socio-economic factors-either transient or long-prevailing. ...
... But at the time, many scientists openly engaged in and encouraged them. In some literatures, such as ego depletion, for example, foundational theories are now nearly debunked despite widespread support and hundreds of positive results reported in their favor (Hagger et al., 2016). This has led researchers to wonder, "if a large sample pre-registered study found absolutely nothing, how has the ego depletion effect been replicated and extended hundreds and hundreds of times?" and "[…] more sobering still: What other phenomena, which we now consider obviously real and true, will be revealed to be just as fragile?" (Inzlicht, 2016). ...
