[en] This study on metacognition of time examined the confidence judgment in the temporal generalization task when the difficulty of temporal discrimination increased, in three different standard duration conditions. The results showed that participants’ confidence judgments were accurate for all comparison durations similar to the standard duration and varied only for the comparison durations shorter or longer than the standard duration. The confidence judgment did not change with the standard duration condition; except for an overconfidence level for the comparison durations longer than the standard in the shortest standard duration condition. Moreover, the results showed that the overconfidence level increases with the increase in temporal discrimination difficulty, although an underconfidence level was found but only for the shortest comparison durations. The implication in terms of decision processes for the generalization temporal task and in terms of metacognitive processes are discussed.
