If the information given is plausible, it can fit in with the rest of the memories about a given situation. This behavior is critical to understand in eyewitness testimony; suggestions by a police officer or attorney, whether intentional or unintentional, could potentially alter memories and cause miscarriages of justice. Intense emotions, by worsening critical thinking skills, also make people more suggestable. Finally, children are more suggestable than adults. Children change their schemas of the world much more often than adults, and are therefore more likely to accept new information. This is compounded by the worse critical thinking skills of children as compared to adults.
