  1. Why would you do that? Is it really necessary or just desirable? In some places, this is a very annoying quality of a person. I sometimes try to keep quiet because I'm afraid of being considered boring and overly meticulous.

    This happens by itself. Your brain remembers what you are interested in, the more interesting you are, the more information you look for, the more you remember.

    As a child, I was interested in many things: biology, anatomy, physics and chemistry. I had a lot of encyclopedias, textbooks and entertaining books at home. By the way, I really disliked “cramming” people who proudly turned up their noses and memorized dates, numbers and cities.

    It so happened that I was able to draw well, but I still went to study chemistry, and it was really interesting for me. There I also fell in love with mathematics. Although I became a designer, my passion for science remained as a hobby.

    You read scientific news, start looking for something on this topic on Wikipedia, then dig through the sources, learn new things. Sometimes thoughts about something just pop into your head, you start researching this topic and realize that people have been working on this problem for a very long time. And so, you suddenly become a person with a superficial, but very extensive knowledge. Thereby “cramming”.

    Nothing is given just like that. My memory is full of facts, events, theories, and terms. But I don't remember the people I studied with, the people I knew, and it all gradually fades into a haze, like it's some book you've read a long time ago. The brain is a funny thing.

    That's when you already get your” knowledge ” of all your relatives, you have nothing to talk about with colleagues, because you are afraid to get them, you are specifically hooked on this drug, crawl to resources like the Question 🙂

    I have a very bad memory for numbers, names, some names. I am by nature a person of visual perception, I remember faces well, the outlines of objects, as well as how pages, articles and formulas look (although I don't remember the numbers themselves), I notice little things — this determines my main profession. But I also remember logical connections and principles very well — this is how I passed exams, drawing formulas from memory and remembering what paragraphs look like. Now, it helps me in my profession, which is closely related to programming (which I often do) and geometry.

    Yes, Wasserman would be better suited to the question as an example 😉
