Memory with me used to be freakish. I had family using me as a gps system to get somewhere. If I had been there once, I could get there again. I would be telling people from the back seat that they were going the wrong way. I think of memory much like a computer.....it gets filled and starts to slow down the overall response time. My short term memory is beginning to fail. I still have above average memory, but until about five years ago, I could have told you every person say in my 7th grade english class, their name, where they sat, and the spooky part.......I could remember some of their phone numbers. I have lost that ability. I am having difficulty with directions which used to be my strongest point. I have seen demonstrations of memory technique, but as a child I had no technique, just loads of memory stick in the computer.......well those sticks appear to be full.
