The veterans’ Everyday Memory Scale scores were not significantly correlated with the verbal memory index (r=–0.05, N=105, p=0.60), nor were they significantly correlated with any of the IQs (full-scale IQ: r=–0.18, N=105, p=0.06; verbal IQ: r=1.19, N=105, p=0.054; performance IQ: r=–0.16, N=105, p=0.11). The Everyday Memory Scale, however, was significantly correlated with each of the measures of psychopathology: the Beck Depression Inventory (r=0.48, N=105, p<0.001), the global severity index from the Brief Symptom Inventory (r=0.53, N=105, p<0.001), the Dissociative Experiences Scale (r=0.34, N=105, p<0.001), and the Mississippi Scale for Combat-Related PTSD (r=0.42, N=105, p<0.001). This pilot study, derived from archival data, suggests that self-reports of poor memory may not reliably reflect the degree of memory impairment these veterans experience. Rather, such self-reports may be effective indicators of emotional distress. Control for substance abuse and other comorbid diagnoses, as well as the addition of a more thorough evaluation of memory functioning, would help to determine the accuracy of these findings.
