Just a question here, how do you remember things. I have such a hard time remembering detail type things-I can go general-but itty bitty gritty stuff-is hard, I want to know why that is, and what I can do to improve that. I did, we all did in school, had to use something to trigger those things to remember them for a test, I know I had to-I just can't remember how I did it-maybe assimilation: using what I already know, maybe common sense-sort of like trivia-I know the answers, but I am two seconds behind everyone else in getting them.

You have to have context for the things you want to remember. Make associations.

ADDers have poor working memory, so we need to bypass it.

If you can't think of an analogy or something else to associate a new item with, try using neumonic techniques (like making up an acronym - e.g., EveryGoodBoyDoesFine). Songs work well for me. Thanks to Schoolhouse Rock, I learned the preamble to the constitution in no time!
