4. Not only that,

when asked to describe what they have just witnessed, people often stumble over details and get them wrong.

I once witnessed a serious car accident. I was much better off talking to the police later. I was able to describe what I saw calmly, and in more detail. I remembered more.

Of course it was good to get my first impressions. But I now understand why eyewitness testimony is so unreliable. And I was trying to do things conscientiously!
