Book Extract

Everything I do is held in picture memory. For example, when I drive to my brother's house in Banbury I look for certain shaped trees and bushes on the side of the road, so I know which junction to get off at. I'm also very good at production work, as it uses visual memory for knowing where everything goes. I've also built Lego models for the last nineteen years. If someone tries to explain things to me using manuals, I don't understand, but if they show me what I have to do then I can pick it up. My visual side takes over and pictures where everything should go. Like a camera taking a picture, I have a photo memory of people's faces that I know and everything that I do, day in and day out.
