How long does information last in the short-term memory?The answers were pretty well-spread again, and I'm really curious as to why people picked the answers they did; I guessed 9 seconds, assuming that unless I'm doing immediate spitback, it's not short-term memory; my reasoning wasn't bad, but my answer was wrong:
And the reason from Shragi:
9 seconds 13 (27%) 20 seconds 21 (44%) 140 seconds 6 (12%) 5-6 minutes 7 (14%)
Up to 20 seconds. By then it has either been stored in the long-term memory or been lost.This week's question is at the top left; feel free to discuss in the comments here as always.
