    Hey all. I have a book titled Timelines for Everything (a Smithsonian picture encyclopedic book) which documents "13 billion years" of historical events and I'm working towards committing it all (events and dates) to memory in the space of 6 months or less. It just occurred to me how grandiose...

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hello, I'm looking for help, maybe from any type but particularly other INTP's on how strong your "memory" is... maybe Si, but I don't want to dismiss what memory Ni has either. I don't really know many other INTP's, and even if I did... we probably wouldn't talk enough to discuss how well we...

  7. [INTP] Do You Have A Good Memory?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Despite what’s said about intps and tertiary Si, when it comes to knowing yourself, do you feel like you have a good or bad memory? Especially in terms of not putting in a conscious effort to remember something, do you find it easy to recall things.

  11. ISTJ Si Te Fi Ne prone to forgetfulness?

    Cognitive Functions
    Hi. Just wondering if I have some issues with memorisation. People will tell me something that we did, and I don't remember it at all, and when I do think about it after all the detail they can give it feels almost like I am imagining it instead of remembering it. I wonder if this is a problem...
  12. [ISFJ] Do you like to delegate?

    ISFJ Forum - The Nurturers
    Hi again, forums! :kitteh: Just another thing I'm wondering as something that could possibly be common among ISFJs.

  18. How does your memory work?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Different people think differently, and also remember differently. How does your memory work? e.g. mine is like a filing cabinet. If I know what I'm looking for, it's easily retrieved, but if I only have a vague idea of what I want, then I'll come up blank. It's great for remembering facts, but...
