    Yes because I have bad anxiety if I don't know something as basic as my phone number. Don't they teach you how to read in school?

    I will admit I'm still shocked that people don't know their own phone number? What if you lose your phone and you need to call it [only to find out it's under the sofa]?

    No.

    I don't know how people like you can function without knowing something as basic as memorising your longterm number. I have bad anxiety so please don't flame me.

    I don't need to remember it. It's stored in my phone.

      I've had the same number since shortly after first starting college, I went through the entirety of college without learning it then I started uni. Within the first few weeks of uni, I found that I'd had to say it and write it down so much that I'd learnt it. I haven't forgotten it since.

      It's 11 digits, 9 if you bear in mind that they all start with 07; I'm always surprised when I meet people who have had their number for months or years and don't know it. I must provide it on a couple of dozen forms a year and give it out fairly regularly.

      Mind you, I do consider sending a contact card more often now as it includes email addresses etc.

      It literally just takes a week of constant repetition of your number everyday....
