If you thought your memory was photographic, consider the fact this woman can remember every moment of every day going back to the age of eight years old. If anything, this condition called hyperthymestic syndrome from the Greek thymesis, for remembering, and hyper, meaning well above normal show us that perhaps many of us do only use 10% of our brains.
Once anonymous and referred to in scientific texts by initials, Jill Price has recently come out in the open about her condition and calls it a curse as she is able to focus on every bad decision she has ever made.
Speaking of bad decisions, I realize I am off my main news area of focus but hey — it’s Saturday — don’t my readers need a break from communications and tech from time to time?
But getting back to Ms. Price, she is a school administrator and this begs the question as to why she hasn’t decided to put this incredible memory to use in politics, counting cards the military, etc.
Finally, I would imagine such a gift would be a blessing if applied in business. BTW, we are always looking for top talent here at TMC.
