Neuroscientists Say Your Forgetfulness Is A Sign Of Extraordinary Intelligence

If you keep forgetting things, like important dates, a friend’s birthday, the name of people you have met, words you want to use, you are surely worried.

However, you can finally relax, as according to scientists, forgetfulness is a sign of higher intelligence. Some people have a more efficient brain and easily memorize more things and details. On the other hand, there are people who cannot remember tiny details or things they have learned a long time ago.

According to researchers Paul Frankland and Blake Richards from the University of Toronto, these minor brain lapses are completely normal, as the old memories in the brain can be “overwritten” by new ones.

They also found that people with a better memory are not necessarily more intelligent, and they actually discovered that the opposite might be the case.  They claim that it is much more useful to memorize a larger scale of everything and forget tiny facts than memorizing all details.

According to Prof. Richards, the brain forgets irrelevant details and instead focuses on the things that will help you make decisions in the real world.

My Mother finished her life in a nursing home that was just full of Mensa members. It was fascinating. I was surrounded by brilliant people. Who would have guessed ?
