I have problem(acute one) of remembering names of people I am introduced to, though I can remember their faces very distinctly. Apart from this, when learning something new I tend to remember the logic/theory behind it and am able to apply it. Once understood, I don't feel the need to study the same thing again. But in exams I have to reproduce the dreaded text book stuff(due to the bad education system). And am very good with numbers can remember numbers very easily(ex: phone numbers, account numbers, constants etc)
I have seen people who have awesome memory (dunno how many times do they repeat the study though).
Any here with such a thing for memory? any what are your thoughts on this?
