Help,my friend!I have a very very poor sense of direction,though i try my best to remember the roads,the streets,the symbols,but in vain,i always got lost.I learn from the book,that girl has weak sense of diretion by born. :( So do you have a good sense of direction? Are there ways to improve it? Thank you!

I have never been good with directions unless it is somewhere I have been several times,or unless I have written directions or unless my fiance knows how to get where we are going and can give me step by step directions on how to get there.

Hi There, Well...they say everybody has the things they are good at, and those that they are not. I am certainly not good with directions. In fact I am horrible with them. It is the area of the brain that has to do with spatial sense. I have a learning disability with that area and it always comes out when I am trying to find my way around. I am not sure if there is a way to improve it, other than to always be organized and know where you are going beforehand. cheers,

I have a HORRIBLE sense of direction. People try to give me instructions on how to get places and I just look at them all puzzled-like. Or if someone says "Go east down ____ street." or something like that I have no idea which way to go.

I got the same problem as yours ifglan! I can't remember directions, unless I went through the same street or road daily. My parents said that it's from my grandma, she too didn't have a good sense of directions.

I think i have a good sense of direction... just tell me where the place is... how to get there... what are the landmarks... and i will be there in time... i never get lost... even when i was in a different country... i was able to find my hotel just by looking at the map... although it took me a long time... but i did not get lost... it is like i have my own map inside of me...

Hi friend, i have a better sense of direction. I can easily understand any roads or any route, if i goes by once. My friends have wondered many times, when i guide them. Thanks

I had a good memory during my younger years and i never get lost in going anywhere.Later as i am getting older my memory also become weak.I am started to become forgetful sometimes but i think we never get lost if we just know how to read the names of the streets and signs and i am not too old to forget to do that.As long as i have the complete address i think i will not get lost.
