Notes On Conversations and Memory

Earlier, I came across an article where it was estimated that people speak about 7,000 words a day. That’d be a lot for anyone to remember.

To elaborate, if we do speak about 7,000 words a day, that comes out to around 2,555,000 words a year. I’ve heard some people claim they remember every conversation they’ve ever had.

I can say with the utmost confidence now that they actually don’t.

It would be a cool superpower to have though, if such were actually possible, wouldn’t it?
