in thread When I count, I think of numbers as...

I just barely made it through mathematics in high school just because of my more-or-less intuitive grasp of geometry and spatial puzzles. Ofcourse then I had to do real algebra in university which was quite difficult.

I don't think my brain is very visual, but I do have trouble remembering people's names - I have to *remember* to remember their names, or I'll forget it in 5 minutes.

On the other hand, I love idioms and weird information, and I have no trouble at all remembering those - my brain is full of trivia and out-dated expressions.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Hell, I *STILL* remember the license plate of one of my old girl friend's cars from 15 years ago. I'm jammed full of those weird idioms and trivias. I can still remember how to calibrate a commodore 1540 5 1/4" floppy drive, but I couldn't tell you the name of the person I just talked to on the phone. heh. Although I think that has more to do with my other condition (that I rarely speak of... ADD). ;)


    Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
