I made this up, don't worry. :D
Do you know your bank acct number by heart? If it is a checking act, add 1 point if you can remember the routing number as well.
Can you remember what you had for breakfast or dinner last night?
Do you know where your keys and cell phone (if applicable) are?
Can you remember the last movie you saw in a theater?
What time did you go to bed last night?
Can you remember the last text you got from someone?
Do you remember (even vaguely) last night’s dream? 1 extra point if you can recall vivid details from the dream.
Do you remember the toys you had as a child? One extra point of you can remember your favorite.
Can you remember the name of your best friend as a child?
Can you remember the last appointment you had with a doctor?
Give yourself 2 points for each question you can honestly answer, and any extra points. Now, add all of your points and rate yourself on the scores below:
20 points or more: Excellent memory! You recall everything, congrats!
14 -19 points: Not bad at all! You can rely on your memory most times. Way to go!
10 - 13 points: We need to do some memory exercises here. Play some memory games to help you.
5-9 points: Time to do those crossword puzzles.
0-4 points: Can’t remember anything? Time to see a doctor.
This test is a made up test by me of course, and not to be taken seriously. But if you think you need to get better, try everything and anything to help yourself!!
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
