Example text

If the person shows the artist a picture of a round head, the artist may think it looks square. Yet the interpretation is drawn as the selected reference photograph suggests. Let’s now apply these memory concepts to the victim of the “Psycho Straphanger” case. He was on a well-lit train at the end of a work day. He was seated only a few feet from the suspect. He viewed the suspect when his suspicions first became aroused. He is a parole officer and has had contact with many individuals of this type.

The perceptive factors leading up to the foundation of the victim’s memory are ideal. As a matter of fact, these circumstances could be considered excellent. In a situation like this, there are high expectations for this composite session. The expectations can be compared to standing at the plate during a baseball game waiting for a pitch.
