Thanks hanks for accepting my application to join.
I think I’ve always had a terrible memory, and have been known to have ten minute (or longer) conversations with people I encounter while experiencing a growing sense of anxiety as it becomes clear that they know me pretty well - but I haven’t a clue who they are - it’s a lifelong thing and not age related.
Currently, at 63 and retired, I find I’m getting too many “tip of the tongue” incidents e.g. I can never recall Nicholas Cage’s name, and find myself traipsing through the alphabet fruitlessly seeking a clue. However, after ten minutes study I am able to recall the places in the example memory palace without difficulty - so I want to learn more.
I look forward to learning about other people’s experiences too. Oh, and I’m keen to learn Greek, and I noticed that a memory technique can help with language learning.
