    My brain despite having bad spacial awareness and sense of direction, somehow remember's the layout of train stations ridiculously easily and does the same thing for supermarkets.

    What random stuff do you have a good knack for remembering?

    The first like five or so seconds of songs. Give me pretty much any semi-popular song and I can give you the title and artist within seconds (that's what happens when you listen to music too much!)

    Pokemon names though not so good now since I haven't played a pokemon game apart from ORAS in several years. Yr 6 I was that kid you'd ask for how to get a certain pokemon in the games.

    I remember all the unnecessary useless things that shouldn't be noticed in the first place. :facepalm:

    - train stations
    - if there's a dot/mark on a screen I'd remember the colour and position of it
    - some physics formulas
    - layout of shops including light fixtures and flooring
    - routes that I may have taken if I had walked it so I can make my way back easily
    - number plates of cars
    - position/colour of certain objects
    - names with faces

    People's birthdays and routes that I have taken, but not routes that I have to take.

    Things from games but I don't really play those anymore so have forgotten most things.

    A lot of things to do with commercial aviation (flight numbers, airlines, etc)
    basic geography (capitals, cities, currency)
    music (as in playing music, I can still play pieces I learnt years ago with minimal practice)
    I can also easily remember names and faces...

    I think I developed it out of necessity. My mum and sister always turned to me to ask for phone numbers and things because I'm the most organised of us all and I just decided that memorising numbers would be much easier than having to look in my address book or phone every time someone wanted to know something. And then I found myself memorising all the numbers I needed to know, so now I can memorise something if I repeat it to myself a few times. And I find that once I have things memorised I can remember them for years after, which is handy when banks ask for previous details or something.

    That's amazing I was thinking about it earlier and I thought you were joking that everyone can remember their own phone number and bank card number. But I see now you're serious and you have a hidden talent. Are you good at maths?
