Method: Using convenience sampling method, three groups including 25 obsessive- compulsive patients (checker-type), 23 patients with generalized anxiety disorder and 26 normal subjects were selected. In the present causal-comparative investigation, participants completed Memory and Cognitive Confidence Scale, Padua Inventory and Beck Depression Inventory-revised. Data were analyzed using analysis of variance.
Results: The results showed a significant difference between three groups in memory and cognitive confidence (meta-memory trait) scale and its subscales.
