Do you think you have a good memory or a bad memory?

If you have a good memory do you ever find yourself angry with people who can't remember things you've said to them or things you have done with them?

If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember?

Have you been known to either repress certain memories or believe that something has happened so strongly that you turn it into a memory that in actuality does not exist?

Do you think you have a good memory or a bad memory?
I have a terrible memory. I'm pretty much one step away from Alzheimers, it's that bad. Combined with my selective hearing, you might as well not tell me anything because I will either forget it or not even hear it in the first place


If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember?
All. The. Time.

Have you been known to either repress certain memories or believe that something has happened so strongly that you turn it into a memory that in actuality does not exist?
I wouldn't say known to, because I keep my memories (that I can remember) to myself. I do have a habit however of thinking that scenes from my dreams are actually memories and vice versa, I hate it ;-;

I have an excellent memory. If I ever say "I don't remember" something, chances are I'm lying and it's a way to get out of answering whatever question it is I'm being asked.

I don't get annoyed with people who don't remember things, though.

Do you think you have a good memory or a bad memory?: I have somewhere between a good memory and a bad one.

If you have a good memory do you ever find yourself angry with people who can't remember things you've said to them or things you have done with them?: Very rarely, that happens.

If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember?: No, not ever.

Good.

Too many times and too often.

Yup. Or at least I try to.

I think I have an good memory( thanks Nintendo) and yes I can get ticked off if someone forgets something.

I think my memory is decent. I usually dismiss and forget details which are not of real importance to me though. I generally get annoyed when people can't remember things I've said / shown them. To answer the third question, I think this has happened sometimes.

YES MY MEMORY IS VERY BAD

I tend to forget things quickly due to my busy life, especially at math class.

It depends... Some bad things in my life I just want to forget, but I remember them anyway. But my memory is decent enough, I guess.

I have a terrible memory. Some things I'll remember fine - I'm pretty good at trivia games, usually - but usually it's the kind of things I need to remember, like where something is or when that thing had to be mailed by, that I don't remember. If I have anything I need to remember I have to write it down and put it somewhere I'll notice it or I'll probably remember three days after.

I'm sure I've mistakenly remembered something that didn't actually happen, probably by confusing two half-remembered memories.

I have a good memory when it comes to names and faces, but not really anything else.

But when I forget things people don't usually get mad, since I don't get mad at them for forgetting things.

My memory is really weird. Like, I'll remember random events that happened on the Internet years ago, but I can never remember of the top of my head what I need to grab in the back at work. -_-; On the whole, I'd say my long-term memory is decent for events that that matter to me, but my short-term memory is absolute crap. That's why I use the calendar function on my phone for a lot of things. Otherwise I'll just plain forget to do it. D:

I don't think anyone's ever been too annoyed with me for forgetting things. At least, I can't think of anything right now.

I don't remember things that aren't important to me, I generally try to run off of as little brainpower as possible for memory. But what's important to me may not be important to other people, and vice versa, so I seem super scatterbrained when I really do remember a lot of things, just things that matter to me and not anyone else. :( I find it hard to remember if I didn't think it was important to begin with, I just can't make myself remember if I didn't care when it was said.

I have a good memory, I wish that some of the things that i have witnessed will erase from my head right now

If you have a good memory do you ever find yourself angry with people who can't remember things you've said to them or things you have done with them?
Yes, all the time like my mother for example >_<"

If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember?
I have a good memory. Sometimes, I pretend to have a bad memory to piss people off :P

Err.....Nope

I have a good memory except when it comes to stuff like formulas and facts for test, as I've found out in college recently. I get annoyed with people who don't remember stuff, as well as people who think I don't remember anything and feel the need to tell me things 753 times to beat it into my head (read: my parents).

I'm pretty sure I've changed my memories of certain events in the past, but I'm not sure which ones xD

Do you think you have a good memory or a bad memory?
I've got a good, but very selective memory. Very often I remember the most stupid things, while I sometimes have trouble concentrating on my schoolwork. A good example of this is remembering what kind of handsoaps are present in my girlfriend's house. Not even kidding.

If you have a good memory do you ever find yourself angry with people who can't remember things you've said to them or things you have done with them?
Not exactly angry, a bit frustrated's more like it. I don't mind refreshing people's memories, but it can get annoying if they still don't get it after the fourth time of telling them.

Have you been known to either repress certain memories or believe that something has happened so strongly that you turn it into a memory that in actuality does not exist?
Nope. Though I managed to recall myself saying something while in actually a friend of mine said it.

I sometimes have selective memories. I can hold a grudge from last Tuesday, but I can't tell you what I had for breakfast yesterday. I can't say that anyone has gotten mad at me for continuously forgetting things either. Then again, I'm the oblivious type. As for repressing memories or making up new ones, I don't think I've done either. I mean how would you know? xD

My short-term memory is very good, and I do tend to resent when people forget things I've told them fairly recently. Long-term, on the other hand, is a completely different story... I really can't remember most stuff that happened as late as 5-years-ago. It's kinda bad, but my really good short-term memory makes up for it, I think.

Otter Mii-kun

My short-term memory, has, sadly, been going down the crapper for the past several years now... More often than not, I'm told something, and end up forgetting it in a matter of minutes! (I'm getting to be like Dory from "Finding Nemo" and that's not a good thing!)
However, there are a few major things that I end up remembering for years and years. These usually are bad things that have happened to me in the past. Sometimes, I even have dreams based on these bad memories-and may even remember some of them long enough to write it down and tell about it!

The Corrupt Plague

Do you think you have a good memory or a bad memory?

A combination of both. My long term is good enough that I can remember much of anything that happened to me when I was young. My short term really sucks though so I have to write a lot of things down or else!

If you have a good memory do you ever find yourself angry with people who can't remember things you've said to them or things you have done with them?

Yes, that does happen sometimes but it also works as a double edged sword. I tend to get annoyed when they forget the good and happy when they forget the bad.

Have you been known to either repress certain memories or believe that something has happened so strongly that you turn it into a memory that in actuality does not exist?

I'm not sure about this one.

I have a wonderful selective memory in which I'll sometimes remember the oddest things, and forget things that I should really remember. A lot of the times I'll just forget until reminded, and then I'll remember saying it, or reading about it, ooor something along those lines. However, there are times when I'm a bit oblivious or didn't hear something or I heard it wrong, so I'm either completely clueless when they're trying to remind me, or I argue that it was something different than that they were saying.

I've learned to have a bit of patience when it comes to people who don't remember things, mainly because of my own memory. It would be a bit rude if I got mad at people, when I do the same thing. However, telling me something five seconds after already telling me gets me upset. Sometimes I forget things quickly, but I don't forget them that quickly.

My memory is strange — I can remember things from years ago, and I have all my friends' phone numbers memorized, but I can't remember what I had to tell someone or what I'm doing sometimes, but overall, I have a great memory. I usually don't forget things.

No, I don't look down on people with bad memories or feel frustrated when they forget something. I don't mind reminding people of things every so often. In fact, I often remind people about things when they seem lost.

No, I don't supress memories, but sometimes I pretend to forget things. There are things that I remember that I really shouldn't, and I probably remember every time my parents have reprimanded me in my childhood.

My short term memory is horrible. Like, I when I first started at my job I had to ask how to make the same thing 20 times before I kind of remembered it.

Once I remembered it once though, I remember it as long as it's relevant. The minute I stop working there I will forget everything. Like school and summer vacation ^_^

I usually have a really good memory but it's deteriorated for some reason over the last few years. D: I used to remember everything perfectly as a kid and now it takes a lot for me to remember even simple to-do lists. (Though amazingly, I just paused during that last sentence to go take some pills I'd forgotten to take all day despite several reminders from my phone!)

When something important crops up, I've started learning to tell other people as well so I can blame them when we both forget have a bit of insurance in case I forget, lol.

I think people are just used to my spotty memory though, haha, so people don't get angry too much. That or I'm as bad at picking up on that sort of thing as I am at remembering!

No, I can't remember things sometimes so what's the point in being mad. It's such a total waste.

If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember?
Sometimes but like I said before, they're just wasting their time being frustrated.

Have you been known to either repress certain memories or believe that something has happened so strongly that you turn it into a memory that in actuality does not exist?
If I've actually achieved such a thing, why would you think that I'd be even remotely aware of it? Seriously this question cancels itself out.

Are you forgetful? Do you have to make lists or sticky notes or other tools in order to remember things?

I can be pretty forgetful. In fact, I am creating this thread because earlier today, when I was driving around, I had an idea for another OVP thread, but when I got home I forgot it. So I made this thread instead. XD And I tend to do horrible with lists that aren't written down. If you tell me more than three things without writing them down, chances are, I will forget everything past the fourth item. >__>

So how about you?

I'm really meticulous and methodological with what I do, so I don't usually forget things. If I do, it's mostly unimportant stuff, but occasionally I do forget or misplace items.

It depends. I'm usually fine with words and objects, but numbers are totally beyond me. I feel terrible about it, but I can't even remember anyone's birthday unless it falls on some sort of holiday. I wouldn't even remember my own if it wasn't on Halloween.

LOL I am exactly the opposite of you! I cannot remember much of anything unless a number is involved. I remember birthdays, phone numbers, my bank routing/account number, my credit card, my debit card x.x, but people's names? Pssh.. only way that's happening is through tons of repitition or your name is spelled in binary!

I have a very good memory actually. It's kinda scary good sometimes. I hate when I tell people something happened and they're like "ummm that didn't happen" but I know it did. :( I'm very good at remembering little details too. Tell me your birthday, middle name, favorite color, etc. and 90% of the time, I will remember it. Especially if you're really close to me.

twistedpuppy
September 24th, 2011, 07:36 PM
I have enough trouble remembering what I ate for breakfast. I can't be trusted enough to remember names, numbers, or events. The only thing I have don't have trouble remembering are grudges. And that comes in handy.

I have kind of a bad memory. I will say or do something or someone wll tell me somethng and I'll forget about it soon after. Its kind of bad. I also have forgot alot of stuff that happened years ago like in school and stuff. I dont really know why this is, I dont like it much.

I can remember dates and generally anything numerical, but when it comes to anything else, I've got Alzheimers. I have a habit of forgetting words mid sentence and I hate it ;-; Like, I'll be talking about something really important and I'll be like "...so I heard that Sasha kissed a boy and they totally made....um.... jesus christ whats the word um... they made out! Yeah!"
I hate my memory, lol.

If you have a bad memory do you ever find others annoyed with you for simply not being able to remember? Yes, makes me want to smack them.

I kid you not, one time I was 8 years old and I had a dream where pokemon actually existed and when I woke up I could vividly remember the dream, so for about 2 months I completely believed in pokemon, to the point that I would run through the woods looking for them. Even now I can tell you the entire dream in detail.

I can remember things like facts really easily, but my memory when it comes to things like bringing my homework in for class is TERRIBLE! In my middle school, we had to have our parents sign the envolope our progress reports/report cards came in. Most kids brought them in the next day. I was infamous for bringing mine in the day the next progress report/report card came out.

I definitely don't know whether I have a good memory or a bad memory, because sometimes I could remember all of it completely, but sometimes I'm completely blank! D: .. It's just unfair! .. I do get annoyed at times when they can't even remember one word that I said! xD
