    Absence of Visual Recall

    I cannot remember images. I don't have a 'mind's eye' or at least it isn't switch on most of the time. For example, if:

    I see a good looking girl leaving a pub/bar, and turn to my mate & say, 'She was fit.'
    He says, 'Which one? What did she look like? Was she tall? What colour hair did she have?'
    I say, 'Dunno. Can't remember.'

    I'm serious. When ever I meet a new girl, I have to make a point of mentally noting what colour eyes she has. Not doing this has been disasterous on several past occasions.

    Can't remember tunes very well either. For example, I can't play a tune in my head. I certainly can't sing.

    Just wondering if anyone is like me in this respect? I am wondering whether programmers are more likely to be like this.

    Nope not me. I would imagine most programmers would be good in math. And math and music ability often comes hand in hand because they lie on the left(?) side of the brain.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.
