  9. 11. Analysis of the Activity People tend to remember items that fit into the schema. In other words, people remember things which relate through a theme similarity etc.
  10. 12. People sometimes tend to remember things because they stick out. This is usually because people are focusing on things that are not actually in the targeted area. It is also possible that people think of things that are not actually there, but they belong in the theme, so therefore the memory makes this part up, so that we do not need to memorize as much.
