For example, the poor memory system applies to the case study where Diane recalls to have trouble remembering whether she turned off the gas or not. According to cognitive perspective, patients with OCD have different obsessive thinking patterns which cannot be dismissed and often are misinterpreted leading to exaggerated sense of responsibility. This concept can be applied to Diane’s case where she took a big responsibility as a child for her mother’s life by obsessively praying for her safety. Individuals with OCD blame themselves for having these thoughts and for the terrible things that will happen as a consequence of them (Shafran, 2005).

I know that for a while it took a long time, like other women, to notice that there was something wrong with the way that I was treating my spouse, friends, and strangers.

Elizabeth on the other hand was rather nervous about the situation and guilt began to eat away at her. The guilt had a strong effect on the younger girl. She became rather distracted, and confused. She babbled nonsense, woke up screaming at night, and became weak, refusing or even forgetting to eat. But her guilt did not give her the courage to report to Reverend Parris what was taking place, and so the meetings continued.
