Forgetfulness can be a sign of intelligence according to science
You are not stupid if you often forget things
According to researchers at the University of Toronto, a good memory is often overestimated. Forgetting things should not be seen as detrimental, apparently, it can actually benefit your intelligence. They say it’s important for the brain to forget useless information to be able to focus on important information. So actually remembering useless details is actually a barrier rather than an advantage.
According to the researchers forgetting useless information benefits us in making decisions. It makes it a lot easier when all those irrelevant thoughts don’t pop up in our head every single moment. Forgetting important information on regular base can be a problem, but no need to worry when you forget information you don’t necessarily need to remember.
