How’s Your Memory?!

I generally have a pretty good memory, but let’s face it, with all of the information and sensory input coming at us from every direction during the day, it is getting harder and harder to remember everything.  Here are the hard, cold numbers about how the average guy fares when it comes to memories . . .

  • 26% – birth of their child as their happiest moment
  • 18% – getting married
  • 27% – erase the details of a past relationship
  • 22% – swear to have a photographic memory
    • <0.1% – actually do
  • 58% – have forgotten their spouse’s birthday
  • 42% – claim to have never forgotten their anniversary
  • 34% – forgot where they left their cell phone
  • 43% – have forgotten a woman’s name mid-date
  • Age of 4 – average guys earliest memory
  • In his 50s – starts to notice memory loss
  • 40% – regularly forget one of their login passwords
  • 49% – believe there will be a cure for Alzheimer’s in their lifetime
  • 50% – wish their doctor could prescribe a memory steroid
