Eidetic memory: is an ability to vividly recall images from memory after only a few instances of exposure, with high precision for a brief time after exposure, without using a mnemonic device. Although the terms eidetic memory and photographic memory are popularly used interchangeably, they are also distinguished, with eidetic memory referring to the ability to view memories like photographs for a few minutes, and photographic memory referring to the ability to recall pages of text or numbers, or similar, in great detail. When the concepts are distinguished, eidetic memory is reported to occur in a small number of children and as something generally not found in adults, while true photographic memory has never been demonstrated to exist.
Eidetic imagery is the ability to remember an image in so much detail, clarity, and accuracy that it is as though the image were still being perceived.
Scholar Annette Kujawski Taylor stated, "In eidetic memory, a person has an almost faithful mental image snapshot or photograph of an event in their memory. However, eidetic memory is not limited to visual aspects of memory and includes auditory memories as well as various sensory aspects across a range of stimuli associated with a visual image."
|Personal History||Joined the academy at 16, due to her eidetic memory. Excelled at Intel and engineering, and ended up staying an extra two years for command training, and an Engineering course. Thus, spent 6 years in school compared to other cadets who only did 4.
Jamie's mother and father are both career Starfleet, as are her siblings. John had expected another son, being one who wanted the sex of his baby to be a surprise when born, and when he got a Beautiful daughter he was thrilled. The name James Thomas Kirk, meant for the expected son, was changed to Jamie Teresa Kirk. John and Terri both had always viewed James Tiberius Kirk as the best Captain in Starfleet history, so had decided to name one child in a similar fashion. Hence, Jamie T. Kirk entered the galaxy.
