My brain is wired to pick up on details.
I can’t help it.
Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t.
I can get fixated on details if I am not careful.
However, I am very select in the details I can get fixated on.
For instance, I can remember conversations that have impacted me strongly in great detail at times. I may recall the person’s body language, facial expressions, and location. When people don’t recall it the same way, I don’t understand why.
I will notice errors in TV commercials, and someone else might not even know what the commercial was about. (I have also been known to talk back to the TV).
I can mentally visualize a list of things, but forget something from the bathroom to the kitchen.
You would think with all this attention to details I would be a whiz on our Tuesday trivia night.
Can you hear me laughing?
