Wow, so do I at the moment. I started a few weeks ago to spell all the villages's names backwards in mind. Quite funny if you find something like:
maddog spelled backwards means goddam
@KyotoAngel & Eugler,: OMG, you are my people!!!
I do the same thing, hahaha! No kidding the pronunciation it the tricky part, but that is what makes it a challenge & interesting. Do I care if people think I'm talking to myself in gibberish, heck no, I'm on a mission! I remember doing the backwards speak in the car as kids on long drives & it was so
easy back then! It's amazing and looking back, I think I should have honed it more instead of listening to my parents saying, "stop it"! It's a talent, for God's sake!
The 9:36 type pattern stuff is often how I memorize long numbers, addresses & phone numbers. If I can find a pattern, or somehow make sense of a sequence, I will never forget it. I guess I have a need to organize most sensory input for some reason. That's also why I studied psychobiology, because I wanted to know why
we do the things we do - the biological basis of behavior. It all comes down to the why, why, why, like a little kid! I was not the kid to be satisfied when I asked, "Why is the sky blue?", to hear, "because God made it that way", I said, "Why?" & "How do you know? Did God tell you?" Which ended in a slap to the face for being a smart ass, but I wasn't being one, it just didn't make sense.
Also, the more info I have, the happier I am! I am never overwhelmed with info, I suck it up like a sponge! But, I have to limit myself, or I would neglect little things like sleep, jobs, eating, interpersonal relationships, he he. I figure as long as I haven't been arrested or killed anyone, I don't have any problems!
