Four groups of 15 Ss (ages 20–65 yrs) observed a videotape of 3 men whom they were later asked to identify in a recognition test. Results demonstrate significant effects on confidence ratings of both target and nontarget stimuli through the interpolation of irrelevant face stimuli, but the pattern of results does not lend itself to a straightforward interpretation in terms of interference.
