This is my first level 10 in any category. For the longest time I thought that if I were to reach level 10 in any category, numbers would be it. I am currently level 7 on numbers and I still think I can reach higher with numbers but I never expected images to be my first level 10. If I had to guess, then international names might be the next category I reach level 10 in, I am already level 8 on international names.
I knew that I was decent with recalling briefly viewed pictures and random symbols when I tested myself a long time ago on this website: http://www.iqtutors.com.au/photographic-memory-test.php
Around 30 seconds or less was all I needed and I could recall the position of 1 random symbol in a grid of 10x10 squares.
I think it was two weeks ago when I started trying to level up in the images category and I noticed immediately how fast I was progressing. I went from level 1 to 7 in almost one sitting. 8 took me a few tries and level 9 was the first level that I had to seriously focus on in order to complete. Once I reached level 9 I knew that level 10 was just a matter of time. This was a few days ago.
I gave it a few tries in the early afternoon but I couldn’t do it. I came close a few times, 2 or 3 mistakes here and there but it wasn’t enough of course. I decided to take a break and try it later again. After a few hours of doing chores, , I gave it another go. First 2 or 3 failed attempts but then I got it!
The thing I am most proud about is that I did without any aid of mnemonics or techniques. I stayed true to my natural memory gift and made it!
sorry, forgot to add picture
