Having a sharp brain is certainly an asset that can help us get through in life. Besides, we always need access to information from our memory bank just like in school exams, work tasks, and even in our daily household chores.
That said, being forgetful can be a total hassle. Just imagine going to a meeting but you forgot a material you should use on your presentation, or an important line that you should deliver in your speech. Think about wanting to do a general cleaning but you can’t even remember where you stored the vacuum cleaner. Or what if you ran to the grocery but you suddenly forgot what you should buy.
People would usually look down on people who are forgetful and absent-minded.
But actully, all of us have the tendency to forget and it is just normal.
When things like these happen to us, we usually feel a little dumb. We worry that something’s probably wrong with us. The brain lapse would make us think that we are lacking and we end up being envious of people who have sharp memories.
The human brain continuously processes our memory by deleting the old ones and replacing them with updated data.
The brain tends to keep the most important memory that will be useful in decision making.
When the brain gets crowded with memories, the data are more likely to conflict and interfere with efficient decision making.
But a new study says we shouldn’t feel brain-deficit, and it’s certainly not like we suffer from short term memory loss like goldfishes. In fact, the study done by the Neuron Journal suggests that forgetting is just a natural process happening in the human brain, and that it might actually make you smarter!
A study then claims that it is OK and healthy to overlook or forget a minor detail once in a while.
While we used to believe that the ones who remember most things are the smartest, it is actually those who forget things that arrive at safer data. The brain works intelligently that the hippocampus (the brain’s area for storing memories) removes the most important details which is actually a vital process in decision making.
The study tells that forgeting can be beneficial when it comes to decision making as we base our choice on what is really important at the moment.
Thus, you don’t have to worry if you tend to forget things as it is just your brain filtering information from your memory.
From the study, it says that the real purpose of our memory is not to remember facts, but to help us make intelligent decisions by retaining valuable information. As much as this sounds like it would need sharp memory, it was found out that being forgetful actually eliminates outdated data in our brain and allows us to focus on something more important or generate a picture that is much easier to understand. In simpler terms, the brain continuously overwrites data from our memory with newer ones. Hence, we are able to come up with more intelligent decisions.
Despite being forgetful, Albert Einstein was known for his intelligence and great contribution to science.
To prove this point, the great Albert Einstein was a pillar of Physics and has developed several theories to are still the bases of many studies today. But actually, this genius is also known for being absent minded!
