Throughout most of my life, I've been told that I'm intelligent because I learn things faster then many other people, or on my own without guidance or intervention from another person. If someone can't figure it out, they'll resort to me...it's even amusing sometimes, because it even happens with people that barely know me, if at all.

I keep track of important and oftentimes, random stuff. For example, I'll keep track and easily remember off-hand a date that's important to me, or I'll remember something that I thought was extremely funny for a long time. I remember a lot of stuff, mostly random about video games I enjoyed, or pieces of scenes that I found memorable, same goes for anime. But on the other hand, lots of small, but not neccessarily unimportant things, I'll completely forget. For example, I'll leave a tool in a certain place at work, a co worker or my boss will call me the next day asking where the aforementioned tool is and I won't remember where it is. Friends will sometimes recall certain things we discussed a few months ago, but I won't even remember the conversation. If I drop a book, video game or anime before completing it for too long, I'll have to start it from the beginning again because I won't remember many, if any of the plot details.

Anyone share this problem? thoughts?

I have a similar issue but it is mostly related to short term memory. My guess is that I can get so focused and lost in thought at times that I forget things I probably shouldn't. My long term memory though tends to be so good it annoys me. I remember the serial number of a rifle I haven't touched in years and other pointless things such as some insignificant memories from when I was 3.

My memory isn't the best. I am thankful for that, since I can't recall everything I have found disturbing.

Think it's normal to forget a series when dropping it for a while. I always like to start from the beginning... (I think i'm just OCD about the details in a story as well).

I'm not good at remembering foreign names... so most of the time you see me talking about anime characters... I'll refer it to... "the guy with the purple hair" or something.

I have the same exact issue, I remember completely random things, without even trying, but forget the most simple things.
