Just wonder any person like me? I am kind of person not sensitive with number, meaning that i will have difficulty to remember particular issue happened on which date, family member's birthday date, amount of money left in my wallet. Of course, my solution to solve my situation is write down on paper(previously), now update in my cell phone.

well i some times am and some times not.. im a numerology freak so i tend to make little riddles in my head to remember things but if the riddle doesnt amount in certain numbers i wont remember it.. some times im good with dates and sometimes im horrible with it..

Hmm.. very special and unique case. =) Glad to have your post here. So when you get into horrible situation, any actions to recover that? I saw some article that they use a method call movie link memory, means that they try to link all the number and imagine that into a short movie, i tried that method before also, it works fine too. Just share little bit more on that, the method to try out is using the playing card, mixed the number and open 1 by 1, then tried to make the movie, so when you close again those card, try to recall. Happy trying. =)

if i cannot remember the date i try to figure it out by thinking of all the dates to the things around the same time to narrow it down.. numbers remembering is easier for me and like an example is the apartment number 34 i knew i would have to remember that apartment number for the address later so i did it like this 3+4=7 7 is one of my favorite numbers or i really mess it up and make it a riddle like this 3x4=12-3=9 9 being a number i like usually i just try to figure it out on how the number can come to 3, 6, 7, 11, 13 when i remember how i can get it to equal out to my favorite number then i memorize how it gets there.. such as the 3+4 or 3x4=12-3=9 type thing.. its stupid.. its insane.. but i have done it for years now and it helps some times.. most of the time is just amusing lol

Wow, glad to have your post with example shown. I feel the method is not bad, because most of the time we only remember what we like most or hate most. With your method, it actually allow you to easier to remember the number. Believe just sometimes you should remember on the operator/equation (like +,-) only. It should not consider insane as the method is works for you for such a long time. It is great that we found someway that's working for us in such cases. =)

I think i am kind of person like you, or may be worst, might consider have short term memory lost. I almost forgot on what i have ate yesterday. If require to think again, i can, but require more time for that. My method to solve it is still manual way, take note all important and critical items and tasks, so at least i would not miss out so much.

Oh great, at least still have someone is similar like me. =) Glad that you also have your way to solve your situation. Sometimes i feel depress why i have this kind of situation but after a while the feeling gone. I actually plan to get consult doctor, but rethink again, should i really do that? because it didn't impact me so much on daily life. Ends up, no action taken and the situation still the same, still feel great most of time. =)

Unlike you, I am very good with numbers. In my younger days, I could remember almost all numbers given to me just by hearing them once. As I am getting older, I do not remember as well, but still really well. I may only have to look at. let's say, a phone number once or twice to remember it. Now, when it comes to birthdays, it just depends on how important that person is to me.

Great pay. You have the gift from god that having a good memory. One of my friend do same like you, he can remember most of the number once he saw it once or twice. So normally when we have any functions like group games and treasure hunt, we get him to remember those critical and important stuff. =) Thanks for the post and all the best and hope your memory and gift from god still as perfect as possible.
