Test your memory

Posted by Malou at 4/28/2009 07:38:00 AM
Are you frustrated sometimes when you were talking that suddenly you forgot the words that you're suppose to say? I got this excerpt from the book that I was reading recently I thought its fun to share it with you and see how your memory is doing. (l0l!)Ask someone to read aloud a list of four unrelated words, pausing for one second between each. Example: freedom, strawberry, tiger, north, flower, truck, valor, dentist. After memorizing the list, perform an unrelated task. Five minutes later, say the words out loud to your companion. If you missed some, have him/her read them to you again. Five minutes later, repeat the words out loud again and note your score. Do the same 20 minutes after that. Most people will remember all or three of the words. Because inborn memory ability varies and is influenced by age, education and other factors, there's no passing grade on this test. take the test again four to six months later. If your ability to perform the test declines particularly if you're aware of memory problems in the meantime seek an evaluation.
