When you've lost a item of value like car key, wallet, work and other objects, what do you do to try and find out where you have lost it? do you panic? do you clamly retrace your steps? What would you do?

yes,i lose everything in every moment in my life.so,i have invented a way myself.i always try to remember things though the things i have before my eyes.or try to think myself at that timezone when i thought it was lost.may be its my own version of Mr. hawkins's string theory.lolz.but,its my way.what do you think?

this is natural for every people to be different.different in many ways.i have seen people.i have seen people who remember hundreds of mobile nos.and when you ask them,they will recollect those nos instantly. the funny thing is that-they also lose things.i think-it depends on pesonal interest...am i right?

First I check the place where I "most likely" put the object. Then I try to retrace my steps for about 5 minutes. If after those 5 minutes, I haven't found it yet, I feel a sense of panic if it is a very important item and will yell at myself. Then I keep looking! haha

hello, First Will gonna panic I dont know that's me and I cant help it I just end up panicking for something that I lost. And then I trace one by one and if i dont see it I will cry out loud specially if it has a sentimental value to me or it is expensive.

panicking is not the solution dear.it wont assist you anywhere.if you are an actor in an melodramatic movie or daily soap,then its ok. otherwise,you have to keep yourself cool.and think...

I would stop for a minute, sit, take a deep breath and relax. Then, i would recall all the places i have been too. Once i remembered them all, i would one by one go to them, and try to visualize what i did there. Only then, will i be able to find it. Or others will ask me if i lost this and that.

hello, I will try to retrace,and if can't find it...i will start getting panicky feelings,can't help it especially if the thing that is missing is really important and badly needed. But i always try to stay calm as i can..but sometimes won't do. have a good Monday morning

I get a bit frantic when i lose something and can't find it. i will rip everything apart to find it. i will even end up looking in places where the item can not possibly be. when i do find what i have lost it will be in the most unusual place or the most logical after all.

funny you should ask..my first reaction is usually yelling and cursing..then I tear up the last place I saw it..then I remember I have a two year old and realize I could never find it again..lol

I will get into anxiety level 1 then anxiety level 2 then 3 then booom goes back to relax state! Ofcourse first I'm gonna feel a little anxious and start to get panic, then I will try to calm myself and retrace my step, then I go ask for help and then calm. That is just me, I don't know with others
