About This Quiz

According to Merriam-Webster, memory can refer to one of many things. It is the ability we possess to recall or reproduce what we have learned. And it is our ability to store what we have learned which can be tested by recognizing or remembering things. Because not every human is the same, everyone's ability to memorize things and the capacity of said memories also differs. So we want to test just how good your memory is.

Will this quiz tell us of your near-legendary memory? Do you remember everything you see or hear, to a point where it's downright terrifying? Or is your memory, and we use the term loosely, a complete sham, so much so that it's laughable? Or are you like most people and fall somewhere in the middle? Are you a little lower or a little higher than the average person? 

So will your result tell us that you have the memory of bottlenose dolphin (they can remember their friends after about 20 years apart -- and that's with no Skype or social media)? Or will you forget about your fate 0.2 seconds after reading it? It's time for us to find out just how good your memory is!
