yes I do have because I need that in my job to survive especially remembering guests' request, room numbers and their needs. My guests appreciate me very much especially if I memorized their room numbers because they felt their taken cared by the hotel and that we pay much regard to their needs. ^^,

That is because the neurons in our brain if we keep on practicing a certain activity will connect each other daily and that will make our memory sharpen. So it is very important to make a daily habit or constant practice to it.

Yes, my memory always serves me right. I am a chess player and I always plays chess and I tell you ever since childhood I have good memory in memorizing long speech at school, poems and anything. I also get the test you provide above a very good testing for memory and I get it just one read. Being a chess player really improves on the way I think especially remembering something when it comes to memorize anything.

Then you can learn it by your own. It's never too late to learn chess and besides you will get all the benefits from it.

While I was reading, I thought I could remember each of them if I close my eyes. But I didn't remember at all! I can't even remember the first word because the last word playing in my head was the last word! LOL... However I have known long ago that I have short memories. So I depend a lot on written notes. If I do not jot down anything important, I would lose the information just like that. If I am lucky I would remember it but if I am not, it would be forgotten forever.

ability to remember thinks is not a talent it is a more like some type of reward you get for concentrating. different people have different ways to concentrate. and while doing tasks i gave here it is better to link the words initially then it will be lot easier.

I can tell you this my memory only work when it wants to work...lol. But for real, I can remember some things but not all things. Sometimes I forget my own cell phone number and half to ask my mom or my best friend what it is. I think everybody experience memory lost every now and then.

my memory is crap... i used to have a great one but smoking the green stuff really kills that for you... anyway, i did okay with that little test thingy so manybe its not as bad as i think but i do know it used to be a lot better... i could remember phone numbers that were YEARS OLD and that i never even used anymore... now i'm lucky if i can remember what i did 5 hours ago lol it really sucks sometimes but ya know it also has an upside...because somethings i just really wish not to remember.... and sometimes i try to kill the brain cells that are remembering things i don't want too but since its not like i can really target a certain cell i just have to keep going and killing a bunch till it gets to the cell i'm triying to forget.;lol
