Witnesses often discuss the witnessed event with other witnesses. Hence, it is important to increase our understanding of how co-witness feedback affects witnesses’ memory and meta-memory. This study investigated the effect of confirmatory and disconfirmatory feedback on the accuracy in witnesses’ confidence judgements. A general conclusion from the study is that the realism in the witnesses’ confidence judgements is indeed sensitive to co-witness feedback, and more so to confirming than disconfirming feedback.
