Photographic Memory

macchina fotografica e rullini

An individual that has a photographic memory learns more easily. He learns more easily because he is able to remember  where the words exactly are in the text, or what the layout of the topic is like, or can associate the colours of a part of topic to a concept.
The ABC newsletter shows the example of a guy that observes images of Piccadilly Circus, in London. After some minute he draws Piccadilly Circus in all of its particular, using only his memory. He’s affected from autism, since the doctor diagnosed it to him, he learns to draw so easily.
Some psychologists say that the “photographic intelligence” is in relationship with the emotion that particular images, colours or forms create in our minds.
If the images, colours or forms are relevant, they will stay in our memories longer.
