    I can remember complex things, like in psychology I can remember studies in LOTS of detail and other things in lots of detail often after just reading/being told it once.

    BUT, simple things such as in physiology remembering the difference between excentric and concentric or basic terms in any subject I can't seem to remember and often get laughed at when i'm like "what's a ....." and they're like that's so basic... Even though I know all the complex stuff

    Thanks for any help

    Maybe you live a sad life and seek comfort from learning lots of complicated stuff?

    Ah right so maybe I find the basics boring and the complicated stuff fun? I think I might do actually. But how do I find the basic stuff fun so I learn it?

    Try to associate them with something interesting. Or you can put them into a system, that way one component reminds you of the next.
