I’ve never experienced any kind of superior autobiographical memory, so for me it’s hard to tell. Basing on what Jill Price wrote, I believe it’s `both blessing and curse. It may strongly depends on experience, which the person with this kind of memory have.
This reminds me of Billy Pilgrim, character from the book I’ve read, called “Slaughterhouse Five”, written by Kurt Vonnegut. Billy was “lost in time”, and although he could travel into any memory he had, he was constantly driven back to hes war memories. For him it was definitely a curse.
