The effect of a warning on Socially-Shared Retrieval-Induced Forgetting (SS-RIF) was contrasted with warning effects on social contagion. Listeners “warned” that their partner was misleading them showed decline in social contagion, but, in contrast, an increase in levels of SS-RIF. Results are interpreted in terms of current theory of SS-RIF.
