Hi there guys! Think this is true? Our mind is very complicated, "We hear only half of what is said to us, understand only half of that, believe only half of that, and remember only half of that." Did you notice it?

half of what is said to us? then understand only half (makes it fourth of what is said to us) believe only half of that (eight of what is said to us) and then only remember half of that (makes it a sixteenth of what have been said) guess it is true because while I was typing I a only thinking.. remember half of that.. which makes it.. (calculate.. calculate) you have said 26 words in all.. and I only remembered 4 words.. according to what you have said we can only remember half of half of half of what has been said to us and half of half of half of 26 is 3.25.. quite accurate.

Wow! You actually do the calculation huh. Seems to me it is very true, even I got caught up in the circumstance that I only remember few of what is being said to me.

Well, it happen to me most of the time.. When every time I heard something of course not all the things that I've heard I remember there are some point that no matter how I think of it and try to remember it I just can't.. Sometimes, I'm thinking that maybe I have a very poor memory because even I had just said it a few minutes ago, I already forget it.. Well, if I don't understand what people were trying to say then I'll make sure that he/she will really explain very hard and I'll ask many questions and clarifications so that I will really understand it.. Well, believing something is also difficult especially if there's no evidence or proof to show.. Maybe a certain point you believe on it but not the whole story... I guess it depend to one's person mind if how does it works to them.. If they have a good memory then maybe then can remember everything.. But if they have the same mind as me then only half thing of it can be remembered..

Oftentimes we believe we have sharp and photographic memory. I guess sometimes we are deceive by those belief.
