Do you know anyone with a photographic memory?

I have a friend who I think may qualify as having a photographic memory.

He can remember everyone from his preschool even though most didn’t attend the same district afterwards. As well as people who attended his school and what year they changed school district. Though we attended a small grade school, he’s 25 and can remember where people sat from first grade. I can’t prove him wrong here, but I believe him.

He can remember what vacations my family went on (even though he didn’t attend) 20 years later and what we do according to what I told him. He also can tell us what the climate was like on a monthly basis from when he 9 and onwards.

I’ve wondered if he’s neurodivergent. He has strong logical intelligence though poor social/spatial skills.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • The key: "I can’t prove him wrong here."

  • It's probably weird the fact that I remember when I was baptised at about the age of 2 on my pink birthday party where half the attendees were my mom's coworkers.

  • its hard for me to forget anything that matters . it was very useful in my job. At the end of a three and a half hour lecture the program director accused me of having a photographic memory. I have been a valedictorian twice. but no i just have a better than average file system.
