The memory processes, including recall, are influenced by the objective and logical structure of knowledge, as well as by subjective and motivational aspects. The frequency and distribution of units in a free recall task provide information about the organization of memory and the accesibility of material. The objective of this work was to investigate prospective memory as a function of personality (i. e. selfregulation), goal´s commitment quality (i. e. obligation, intention and desire) and context for which they are generated (i. e. labor and not-labor). Two instruments for free recall of goals were developed and were applied along with Action Control Scale to 70 hotel employees. The results indicate that the self-regulatory tendency, the quality of commitment and the context influence in the amount and structure of remembered goals.
