When did you have your last vaccination? The answer to temporal questions requires a series of reconstructive processes involving the recall of event details, context, and other characteristics that may help with the estimate. The exceptions are events that serve as “landmarks” in people’s temporal memory. In this study, we investigated indicators of dating accuracy for personal events. Our results indicated that confidence, dating strategy, and event characteristics can provide an indication of dating accuracy that may be useful in interviewing settings where date verification is not available.
