Memory is not the definition of smart.

A brain too occupied with remembering every detail, name, date or statistic is less likely to work efficiently. Focusing on having a perfect memory depletes limited brain resources that are better served utilizing cognitive functions that promote independence throughout life, such as problem solving, decision-making and critical reasoning. In some ways, "forgetting" is good, and if you're worried, write down critical information that you want to and should remember.
