Subject: Why do people born in the the early-mid 80s have worse memories?

Written By: fgbn on 05/26/19 at 9:43 am

On every GenDec forum ive been too its always the same patterns (almost to the degree that i would suspect it being the same users with various alts) those born in the early and mid 80s claim that they cant remember anything before the age of 8 or whatever, meanwhile we have those born in 86 and onwards claiming to remember anything from age 3 or 4 at the latest.

Why is this the case? could it have something to do with Chernobyl?

I like to think that it's the younger people being try-hards by being claiming to remember every single thing that happened at ages 3/4. I have a few memories from being 3, but I would be so off the mark if I claimed to 'remember 1996' in any meaningful way. I remember 1997-1999 too, but not with the same authority as someone who was say 8 or 10 or 25 at the time.
