Memory for Intentions Screening Test
Memory for Intentions Test; MIST
The Memory for Intentions Test (MIST) is a measure of prospective memory (PM), the ability to remember to carry out a future task. The MIST consists of eight real-world PM tasks that require the individual to perform tasks at assigned times or when specific cues are given. Tasks vary in the type of cue (i.e., an event cue or a time cue), the length of time in between the assignment of the cue and when it is expected to be performed (i.e., 2 min or 15 min), and the type of response required of the individual (i.e., verbal or action). Individuals work on an ongoing task – a word search puzzle – while they remember to complete assigned tasks.
Following the administration of the eight tasks, a series of multiple choice recognition items are administered that assess the individual’s knowledge of the intentions that were to be completed. Additionally, the MIST contains a delayed prospective memory task which requires an intention to be...
