@T97- I've said that *many* times about both high intelligence and good memory (and the two are related). I'm considering a frontal lobotomy. But as I told @Grik, "I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy!" (:^p) Sounds like a good country song, and I think there actually was such a song many years ago on Dr. Demento.
@tweety- HSAM, "Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory." I have her book. Only a few dozen of them identified so far.
Another is Eidetic memory aka "Photographic Memory." Several here are pretty damn close; @TRLB is one; I'm another. I don't have the *total* detailed recall of 'biographical' memory, but do pretty well, and much of it, *wish* I could forget. Also if I read something in a book, I can tell you about how far into the book the passage was, which side of the page and how far down. Fun.
@MrHate has a Pornographic memory - He can tell you where a certain photo is in a gallery from several years back!
@BiB60 yeah I knew there was a name for it and only a few in the world who have been found to possess it scares the sh*t out of me I mean imagine dating a woman like this EVERY F*ck-up you make will not be forgotten:)
Gorgeous feet:) She has the kind of mind we could use here on this site PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY. If you had dinner with her from like say 10yrs. ago she could tell you the restaurant and what you ordered and what the bill was and what the weather was can't remember what it's technically called but there is a term for it:)
