Abstract A suggestion which instructed subjects to imagine that they were “amnesic” for the events of testing was appended to Wilson and Barber’s (1978) Creative Imagination Scale (CIS). This modified CIS, with think-with instructions, was administered in a tape-recorded, group-testing format to 158 subjects. Data were gathered relating to subjects’ experience and behavioral performance to the “amnesia” suggestion. Findings indicated that high, as compared with low, CIS responders reported appreciably more subjective experiencing of the suggestion but did not differ on any of the behavioral measures that were taken. Subjects who indicated a high, as compared with a low, degree of subjective “amnesia,” however, tended to recall fewer items during the suggestion, to reverse their “amnesia” more, and to display more temporal disorganization of recall. Data suggest that there are possible limits to the role of imagination and imagery processes involved in performance on individual test items of amnesia.
