Add up your points and see what kind of forgetter you are using the descriptions below.
6 â€“ 8 points â€“ Youâ€™ve failed Forgetting 101. You think ahead, and youâ€™re organized and on top of things. Youâ€™d be better off taking the quiz, â€œWhat Kind of Rememberer Are You?â€ Forgetting isnâ€™t your thing.
9 â€“ 13 points â€“ Youâ€™re a Forgetter Wannabe. But thereâ€™s hope. If you stop putting effort into remembering, you may be surprised at how much you can improve. Keep trying.
14 â€“ 18 points â€“ Youâ€™re the Master Forgetter. Your ability to consistently forget is admirable. Youâ€™re a champ as well as a role model for others.
