The “calendar” memory can be a common feature with Kim Peek – when asked about any date they could tell what day of the week it was.
Shereshevsky, on the other hand, was able to consciously remember a virtually unlimited amount of information, while Jill could not – she remembered only autobiographical information (and the events she personally saw in the news or read about).

She’s not very good at remembering things voluntarily.
