Chapter 3 Social Beliefs and Judgments Priming- Activating particular associations in memory. Belief perseverance- Persistence of one’s initial conceptions, as when the basis for one’s belief is  discredited but an explanation of why the belief might be true survives. Misinformation effect- Incorporating “misinformation” into one’s memory of the event, after witnessing  an event and receiving misleading information about it. Controlled processing- “Explicit” thinking that is deliberate, reflective, and conscious. Automatic processing- “Implicit” thinking that is effortless, habitual, and without awareness, roughly  corresponds to “intuition.” Overconfidence phenomenon- The tendency to be more confident than correct—to overestimate the  accuracy of one’s beliefs.
