What is an Eidetic Memory

Quick Notes - Eidetic Memory:
  • Developing your eidetic memory will allow you to remember things more clearly and much more accurate.
  • Eidetic memory is something that can be developed in anyone.
  • By strengthening your eidetic memory you will have an extreme advantage over your peers.

Eidetic memory, photographic memory or total recall is the ability to recall images, sounds, or objects in memory with high accuracy and abundant volume.

The term eidetic is defined having extraordinarily detailed and vivid recall of visual images. Eidetic memory can have a very different meaning for memory experts who use the picture elicitation method to detect it. Eidetic memory as observed in children is typified by the ability of an individual to study an image for approximately 30 seconds, and maintain a nearly perfect photographic memory of that image for a short time once it has been removed--indeed such eidetikers claim to "see" the image on the blank canvas as vividly and in as perfect detail as if it were still there.

Although many adults have demonstrated extraordinary memory abilities, it was previously unknown whether true eidetic memory can persist into adulthood. While many people still believe eidetic memory is just a natural gift - either you have it or you don't, it is actually something that can be learned and used by anyone, including you!

Developing Your Eidetic Memory

While there are some people that can effortlessly memorize and recall things exactly how they are...most people can not. However it is not because they are not as smart or lack magical parts of the brain. It is simply because they don't know how to use the Eidetic or Photographic part of their brain. Unfortunately, these memorization techniques are rarely ever taught in schools and their are very few people who use them. Yet at the same time, learning these techniques will give you an advantage in the classroom, workplace, or real life.
