THE PSYCHOLOGY OF REMEMBERING: A MEMORY LIKE A JOURNAL by Maria Konnikova
This article is about the act of remembering and how it influences of sense of self and the world around us. I am interested in the analogues to photography and writing in this article because these art forms also acts as aids to remember details and events sometimes that our memory fails to capture. As tools, are photography and writing helpful or is the process of doing these take away from our imperfect memory? I also have never heard of the condition known as, "hyperthymesia" (an ability to be able to recall the minute details from any day on demand). I guess this is like a hyper-photographic memory?
