Abstract:This study focused on the influence of stress on the incidence of Tip-of-the-Tongue (TOT) experiences. The hypothesis was that people have more TOT experiences when they are under stress. To test this hypothesis there was a control group and an experimental group. In the experimental group participants had a time limit to read (10 seconds) and respond to (5 seconds) the questions. To control for stress level, the skin conductance response (SCR) was measured and participants had to fill in a stress and anxiety questionnaire of the short version of the depression, anxiety and stress scale (DASS21). No significant differences were found, but there were strong indications that our stress manipulation based on time limitations was not effective
