We Forget Five Things a Day Thanks to Technology
Technology makes life easier in a lot of ways. But we're so dependent on it now, we can't even do simple tasks anymore . . .
A recent poll found the average person can get away with not remembering FIVE things a day, because technology does it for them. And more than a third of us feel like we don't have to remember ANYTHING anymore.
The top five things we forget because of technology are: Passwords . . . other people's phone numbers . . . how to spell certain words . . . how to write legibly, especially young people . . . and how to do basic math.
Our OWN phone number just missed the top five in 6th place. Somehow, 13% of people in the poll said they don't know their own number off the top of their head.
A few more that made the top 20 are other people's addresses . . . birthdays . . . names . . . directions . . . and what time your favorite shows are on.
60% of people in the poll said the main reason we forget easy stuff like that is because we know we can just google it.
