Name one thing that you know about memory?
What are the different kinds of memory?
One thing I know about memory is that memories are not concrete, they are malleable and can be changed over time so that what you think you remember is not necessarily correct.
I guess a more concise way to say the above is the memory is unreliable.
We tend to remember more clearly, as a general rule, that which happened when we were young. By young, I mean childhood from, say, five to eighteen and then our twenties into our thirties. This is probably because we're still experiencing a lot of new things in our lives. Once things become mundane and routine, they're not so easily recalled.
However, I would like to point out that everything that happens to us for ALL of our lives is remembered. Regressive hypnosis proves that. In fact we even remember, under hypnosis, things we think we didn't even notice at the time.
Okay, so there are two things about memory. I don't know about 'different kinds,' Not sure what you were getting at...
There are 4 main types of memory. I was wondering who knew them. Often people remember what they have learned earlier on in their life because of how meaningful it was too them. They might have paid more attention to this because of that reason.

Love really is the answer.When we take 100% responsibility for everything that happens to us, we take the perpetrator's viewpoint, too. We can no longer be a victim. I first felt this transcendent feeling in 1977, when...
