    Default NTs: verbal memory

    Can you remember what someone told you a month or two back-word for word?

    This would lead you to recognize when they have changed thier mind 47 times in a row.

    Frieghteningly so....

    I can remember things people told me 15 years ago - random facts like their little bro's middle name... it freaks them out when I mention stuff like this...

    It's not always the important stuff I remember but odd things. But if I've been paying attention, I would remember the details of the conversation, possibly bits verbatim and certainly could paraphrase a fair bit...

    That said I can be forgetful sometimes too, but that's different I think

    I'm dyslexic, so I might be a freak about stuff like that.

    I always remember the random stuff. And for some reason its always the stuff everyone else forgets about but then ends up being important.
    Also Its great shock value for when people think you weren't listening!

    "Is it not enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe there are fairys at the bottom of it too"

    "Intelligence is being able to hold too opposing views in the mind at the one time without going crazy" - Now all I need to figure out is if I'm intelligent or crazy!

    What the hell do either one of those posts mean?
    What does either one of them have to do with verbal memory?

    The first post is from a reather drunk poster, so it makes total sense in a parallel universe...

    The second post (from murkrow) is talking about the poll options. ENTJs have no yes option. And it has nothing to do with verbal memory.

    What was the question ?

    I've seen that Stargate Atlantis episode recently, when the whole city comes down with a virus that make them loose their memory. They ended all up with even not-knowing their names no more.

    There was one convo in that episode and I only recall it, because it gave me an idea, it was:

    Scientist: "Hell I already forgot the name of my mother, forgetting her birthday I am used too, but I cant forget the damn name, not possible."

    Girl: "What is pi ?"

    Scientist: "3,14159265"

    Girl: "See, you will not forget what you do concern the most with until the end."

    ---------

    I think thats basically the same with remembering sentences from convos. If unpracticed, one will be bad at it. I dont think tho its necessarily type related.

    Yeah, too much actually, it's scary. Conversations and faces I can remember even if I don't want to. Sometimes, I can get to know somebody and say "Hey, I think I've seen you at the market in City X on the 14th of October, was that you?" and he/she'd be like "O_o wtf yes".

    This sometimes causes me trouble with people that may not be thinking about it, or that may approach things in a less "systemic" way. For example, if my girlfriend says that she has to do something at time X on day Y, then she meets another girl after two days and they agree on meeting at a time really near to X I might immediately object that she's already busy with that. But she wasn't thinking about it.

    For this reason I never really needed a written down schedule, I can pretty much remember everything in my head. This used to make one of my bosses mad, until one day I recited him 30 phone numbers I had just casually watched one minute ago. Then he started to believe me. Sometimes it gets a bit obsessive and I don't like it: I may start to remember the price of everything, every timetable of the train I see, everything the professor said at the lecture (and that may not even be good for the exam since they're not always coherent!), etc

    Oh, that nonsense again.
    I recall that person saying some strange things, months ago.

    Thanks.
