Definition: Recency Effect

Recency effect is a human tendency to remember and recollect the things, experiences or gifts/ items which have been given to that person recently. In other words, people remember the things which have been said or described in the end, at the start.


People tend to recall the things or experience which have happened recently, and tend to forget the earlier experiences.


For example if a person hears a long list of words say:

“Frightful” “Murky” “Creepy” “Adventurous” “Misty” “Dark” “Devastating”, he would most likely remember Devastating, Dark and Misty over the other words.
