DailyDirt: What Do You Remember?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Everybody at one time or another wishes they had a better memory. There are some techniques and memory exercises to help improve the way people memorize lists, but some things are just more memorable than others. Some research is starting to delve into why we remember some things but not others, and here are just a few interesting links that you might want to write down. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Re: photographic memories?

    It's called Eidetic memory, and it's not limited to imagery.

    I have it to some degree, and it's strange to me to think that other people may not have the same type of memory that I do.

    I've never actually questioned anyone about how they remember things, though, and I've only become aware of the fact that I have it in the last few years, as I never really cared enough to think about it.

    I am sure I have it, though, so I have no doubt others have it.
