I am asking participants some questions on a form. I have to know which kind of memory they are using when answering these questions. I am having difficulty deciding this. Is there any special technique to determine this?
For example, consider these questions :
Is your name Majid? Is the memory used semantic or episodic? I know that most probably everyone would say semantic because there is no event being recalled, but I am not sure if remembering own's name is possible without recalling an event.
Is your hair black? This one is only available while thinking of a memory, but like the last one it could be semantic too.
Do you know how to ride a bike? This one could be semantic or episodic because I might recall an event of riding a bike and then answer. Or it could even be procedural memory as I might simulate riding a bike and then say, "Yes".
I am trying to figure out how do I assign each question one or more of the memory types?
