Re: Short term memory test

11. Dammit, I really wanted 12, but just couldn't do it.

I can usually remember a phone number with area code, XXX-XXX-XXXX, so I figured I could put a number on each of my hands to get there, but I just couldn't, for some reason.

I though I had 14 but failed.

Re: Short term memory test

I already know my short term is shit, you should see me low scores on my DROID's Simon APP.

I got to 8 and my ADD kicked in because I didn't feel like waiting 10sec every time.

Re: Short term memory test

I got 15 on the first one but I gave up before trying 16 because I got bored. On the second one, no numbers show up for me.
