What People Forget

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. names 83%
2. where something is 60%
3. telephone numbers 57%
4. words. 53%
5. what was said 49%
6. faces 42%

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