I am new on this forum. I found this place and Memory League through a comment on Quora. I was searching wether or not Elon Musk had an eidetic memory. One of the answers said that photographic memory has yet to be documented and that it might not exist at all. It also said that if you believed you had a photographic memory that you should go to www.memoryleague.com and test it there, so I did that.
Not because I believe I have a photographic memory but because I have an unusual memory and wanted to test it out once again.
I have a gift for numbers. I can do large calculations in my head and memorize numbers really fast but what makes this exceptional is that I don’t use any techniques and I also don’t practice. I suspect that I might be a savant because I am also autistic. I can multiply a 5 digit number by another 5 digit number in my head but I don’t know if I had a nice day today. I really started to think I might be a savant was after I found out I store dates in my head after seeing them once. I knew the release year of movies I hadn’t seen in years or even had seen them as a child. It turned out that I knew the release year of every movie I have ever seen (350+ movies) without ever memorizing any of it.
I hope to explore my gifts a bit more in here, I look forward to the challenges:)
