What if you finished reading this article and remembered every detail of it for the rest of your life? Thatís the problem people with super-autobiographical memory faceóand yes, itís often referred to as a problem, not a gift. Their minds are like a computer hard drive that retains everything: dates, middle names, license plate numbers, even what they eat for lunch on a daily basis There are only four confirmed super memory cases, a disorder experts say is somewhat related to OCD, though no doubt there are plenty others who havenít been identified yet.

I think I may have a form of this, I remember virtually everything in great detail but I'll forget where I put something like keys lol.

I see it as a gift and not a disorder.
