    your mental strengths is paramount in the process of expanding and strengthening your mind. The survey deducted that my strongest mental gifts include, but are not limited to: memory, attention, and judgement. My skilled memory has proved useful time and time again. Whether it be in school or in my personal life, it has always been a gift. I have an Eidetic memory; therefore, I am able to remember visual images that I have seen in great detail.

This semester, we were asked to recall the events of a day that happened six weeks prior to the beginning of class. While some students could explain some details of what they had done that day, not all could be certain. Details may not seem to be that important when telling a story from a childhood…

    Memory and personal identity are an integral part of our lives. These characteristics and traits assist us in the way we make decisions and approach situations. Memory in relation to personal identity is a topic that has been studied by several Philosophers. The question of whether or not memory presupposes identity is a circular one, and therefore makes this question important.

    and take little space in terms of specific areas of the brain; however, the visual areas are simultaneously involved with many areas of the brain during sight. Vision is said to involve at least fifty percent of the brain as it is working with other sensory areas, such as touch, spatial, motor, etc. ("Vision: A Collaboration of Eyes and Brain", 2004).
