photographic memory - ask me anythingWatch

It is kind of weird. Particularly last year I just realised I could recall really tiny, obscure details which no one else could... like what someone said to me 4 years ago; I could remember hundreds different random film scenes off by heart in my head; I could remember the 588 word speech at the end of The Great Dictator off by heart after watching it; I could write out a Mandarin/Spanish controlled assessment writing draft with a presentation and about 20 questions to answer - and I remembered them all just after writing them out two or three times...
Nice, sounds like you've got a really strong memory then
I think alot of posters here on TSR definitely have similar, I know that everything you've said above I would also replicate. It's not because of a photographic memory though, that's a myth, or even a semi-eidetic one, but more just because your brain is highly retentive and you've developed strong mechanics for remembering details. You can refine it further even, there's alot of good stuff by Derren Brown of all people.
Basically anything that is theory-oriented
Because it makes people think I am smart when I know everything. I also want to do my best...
Yeah, but my point is I did a Mandarin speaking GCSE assessment in May 2013, and I remember it entirely right now. I've not practised it at all, it is just there in my head forever because I wrote it out three times.
also when you said you remember moments when people insulted you - isn't this the same for lots of people?
i thought to truly have a photographic memory you remember everything on a page after just one read, not even writing out notes or whatever.
