I guess it's a disorder when it significantly affects your every day life. It's extremely common that people remember events wrong. I recall reading that first hand witnesses tend to remember completely different and even contradicting things when enough time passes from some event. Was there even some study where the witnesses were shown footage of what actually happened and they were confused how wrong their memories were.
I'd say you're probably on the safe side as long as you can question yourself and get it right most times.
Or maybe I'm just imagining that I've heard about something like that 🤷♂️
Demolishun1050332dConsidering that our entire experience is us imagining what the input to our senses mean. We assign meaning and value to objects through interaction. Our interpretation can wildly differ for the same situation and environment. One thing I have noticed is I can detect minute changes in an environment. Other people don't care, or don't notice. Other times I completely miss some changes. I was driving by gas station for years. I didn't even notice it was under construction for weeks until I needed gas. I was driving by EVERY DAY. So I definitely missed that change! So my super power is flawed.
