You're getting into the realm of multiple intelligences. If you want to study more about it, I suggest you read books and articles by Dr. Howard Gardner. It is a really fascinating study on how different people learn, retain and use knowledge. It's one of the things I'm really interested in for teaching.

no but for real.. I would say.. birthdays. I'm the bestest for that. I guess. yeah.. maybe cause it's numbers :l
