Forgetting is often associated with a lack of intelligence, according to daily practice.
Yet a study conducted by the University of Toronto claims the opposite. According to them, strong memory is an overestimated asset, while forgetfulness can be an intelligence benefit, reports lajmi.net.
"It is important for the brain to forget irrelevant information and, instead, focus on important decisions," said Professor Blake Richland, who led the research.
Professors Richards and Paul Frankland proposed that memory be used to optimize decision-making by storing valuable information and letting other trivial things go into oblivion.
They say this aspect of forgetfulness is probably a help to us more than a hindrance.
