    the way her fifth(from left) upper eyelash of her right eye when she looked at me in the eyes is an important fact that should not be missed by people im talking with or they arent in a position to discuss about it objectively

    Exactly! It's subjective Fi tinted glasses. . It's the kind of memory that makes for a great memoir, stand up comic, or old age reminiscing but terrible for credible testimony or reselling of directions.

    We usually aren't detail-oriented. Plus, we're private, so we don't go around telling others about our lives. It just happens when we care a lot about what we're talking about that we get excited and feel the need to describe every single detail because "omg everything's so damn beautiful".

    Hmm? Do you mean do I analyze behavior in relationships? I analyze people constantly, whether in personal interactions or strangers interacting or even just on their own. I am extremely analytic of all behavior. People who tell me their relationship issues usually get a fairly accurate translation of the situation.

    It's true I do this, but it's mainly a habit from when I was younger because I got a lot of reprimands and insults for skipping over parts of my stories so they made no sense.

    It is not normal for me to provide that level of detail when describing most events, but the more meaningful the discussion is, the more detail I will give (on the basis that more details give a better picture of the full context of the situation), and if I am talking to someone that I know likes or uses losts of detail, then I also try to provide detail as a way of trying to match their communication preferences.

    What I really want to know is why some times people are all like "My uncle was a 7 foot tall Cherokee chief and a war hero and always wore a Medal of Honor around his neck that was dipped in the actual blood of John Wayne himself and was given to him by his great great grandfather in a blood pact when he saved John Wayne from no less than 10 crocodiles with his bare hands."

    I guess I tell a story the way I want to hear it. Very detailed.

    I actually tone it down A LOT when it's about me/my life. To protect the privacy of my......bff.

    I can say that I have this detailed memory and I can recall things easily, and tell datailed stories. I often do that, when I know people want to hear me (I don't want to piss people off with things they don't want to hear). I love doing this in writing, I feel better and I don't miss a thing I want to describe properly.

    Probably because that's a pretty awesome story.
