I agree with what you said. In one of my posts below I asked all of you a question why she isn’t more successful in her professional life (she is an administrator at a religious school, or at least she was at some point in her life). The reason is of course her superior autobiographical memory. She remembers most of her life in vivid detail, but it doesn’t affect her semantic memory. And even if it did, she would probably have problems understaning concepts or theories – in this respect, her memory was just average and it make her any more intelligent.
