Yesterday, in the middle of a conversation, it dawned on me that I remember my life by way of scenes, and that the scenes always have the caption, "This is where I learned ____." My filing system works that way, apparently. So, in order to remember when something happened, or who was there, or what was going on, I look for files about what I learned and then I study the scene to see what I learned there. And then I can place the whole thing in linear time and geographic space, and I can usually remember all the players in the scene.
So I got to wondering.
How do YOU remember things?
Leave me a comment and tell me. Are there as many ways to remember things as there are people? Or ... are there approximately 16 ways (because there are that many personality types) or approximately 8 ways (because there are that many dominant functions) ... or is it completely random? (Just saying that makes me twitchy. I doubt that it's random.)
