I have recently corrected a friend about the date I had last helped her with some work. She had said it was last summer and I remembered it was around Christmas time. She realized her mistake and then added that I had a good memory. I couldn’t do anything but to laugh at the compliment; that morning, I had memorized a deck of cards under 3 minutes using my very polished memory stems. (But I’ve never gotten a compliment about my memory for doing this or for anything else involving my memory). Ironically, it is what I remember without having made any conscious effort to memorise that earns my memory a compliment. Is this normal?
So, in this thread I’d like to know who has ever complimented your memory on what occasion, or if no one seems to have ever noticed anything about your trained memory, as far as you know. Thanks
