How Good Is Your Memory?



Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic How good is your memory? Memory is one of the most components required for functioning normally. Not only humans animals also possess memory. People with good memory are highly rewarded in our education system and they have a pretty easy going school life. There are many different types of memory and the broadest distinction is short term memory and long term memory.

Short term memory is very interesting and is also known as working memory. It is said that working memory is closely linked to IQ of a person which means a person with higher IQ tends to have higher working memory as well. It is important because IQ scores has the highest correlation to success in life. I do get it that is pretty much derogatory to anyone with lower IQ but many scientists and psychologists claim it to be true. While we will not get into that debate since it could be endless because in my opinion we still have not understood the workings of the human brain completely.

Let us move to the other type of memory called the long term memory. It is said that long term memory could be altered without even you realizing it. There have been several researches pointing at this theory. The funny part is that we don’t even remember it. Here I am not talking about people with photographic memory since they are at the extremes. While it is still been proven that they also don’t remember the perfectly if it had happened a long time before. Memory is one of the most important aspects of human memory and we still have not understood it completely.I hope you liked my short article.

“Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.”
― Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

“I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”
― Beryl Markham, West with the Night

“Isn’t it funny how the memories you cherish before a breakup can become your worst enemies afterwards? The thoughts you loved to think about, the memories you wanted to hold up to the light and view from every angle–it suddenly seems a lot safer to lock them in a box, far from the light of day and throw away the key. It’s not an act of bitterness. It’s an act if self-preservation. It’s not always a bad idea to stay behind the window and look out at life instead, is it?”

Time Does Not Bring Relief

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year’s bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go,—so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, “There is no memory of him here!”
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems
