    All types can remember information. It just depends on the information they tend to remember.

    I suspect with INxJs, their supposed memory for details that Usehername, myself, and others have described could be due to our inferior Se that works at a more focused, internal level. I imagine this is the source of how INxJs can also have acute attention to detail, particularly details with meaning or of subjective interest.

    EDIT: I think a good memory for anything comes from introverted perception (Si or Ni). After all, Ni probably needs to have a good memory in order to distort the collected facts in creative endeavors and so forth. Ni often uses memories of facts and events to predict what will happen next. This is pretty much how the Israeli prophets (who Jung claimed were Ni types) worked in reality. (They were not magical seers.)

    My ISTJ mother used to be the secretary for a social club. Every person was issued a key with a number on it. Even though there were about 500 members, she knew almost everyone's key number, though she might not know their name!

    Damn, I forgot we were only talking about numbers...

    I think a memorization of numbers is more IxTx and memorization of names is IxFx, since the latter is directly in relation to people.

    My ESTJ mom has tens of hundreds of numbers in her head, along with the home addresses of people we haven't spoken to in years, and if you push the shiney red button behind her ear it can tell you the directions and distance from your current position to your destination.

    Although, I do tend to have a rather good memory for names, too.

    Although I can easily memorize sequences of numbers and passwords I am horrible at memorizing dates, names and birthdays.

    I'm better at memorizing a person's astrological sign than their birthday. But if I know their sign, it's easier for me to pinpoint their exact birth date.

    I'm the opposite. But, then again, I'm not an "N", so I guess it doesn't count.
