Things Most Forgotten

Our Daily Bread, December 27, 1996

I was relieved to find out that I'm not the only one who forgets things. Everyone does at one time or another, according to Karen Bolla, A Johns Hopkins researcher. These are the things people most often forget:

1. names

83%

2. where something is

60%

3. telephone numbers

57%

4. words

53%

5. what was said

49%

6. faces

42%

And if you can't remember whether you've just done something, you join 38 percent of the population.
