Things Most Forgotten

I was relieved to find out that I’m not the only one who forgets things. Everyone does at one time or another, according to Karen Bolla, A Johns Hopkins researcher. These are the things people most often forget:

1. names83%
2. where something is60%
3. telephone numbers57%
4. words53%
5. what was said49%
6. faces42%

And if you can’t remember whether you’ve just done something, you join 38 percent of the population.
