Abstract: Past research found robust metamemory illusions about the effects of font type, word-pair identity, volume, and font size on memory that are assumed to share a common cause, such as fluency. The current study simultaneously assessed all four metamemory illusions from vignettes alongside items assessing the belief that fluency benefits memory and that more is generally better. The typical metamemory illusions replicated in all samples. Confirmatory factor and structural equation modeling confirmed that at least the perceptual metamemory illusions (font type, volume, font size) can be explained by one latent factor, which was, however, not related to latent factors capturing the belief that fluency benefits memory or that more is better.
