    • Hi, may I ask is there a cure for such syndrome? I admit that I have got such problem where I am always absent minded and often screwed lot of things that I done.

      I have done admin job in my national service. I doesn't like it but I try my best to do it. I am appointed to sort out documents and arrange them neatly according to the date, from the latest onward and destroying documents that are outdated. When I arranged them, I took out the outdated ones and destroy them. I arranged the rest of it in order and I have checked that I have sorted them out properly, but there are still a few documents that I arranged wrongly where my senior have checked and he said that some of the outdated documents are still in. They are worried that did I destroy the new ones. In the end, there are some new documents that are destroyed by me and they got angry with me. I have been doing this a couple of times and I still have such carelessness. I often got confinement for doing such mistakes. My supervisor was very angry with me and my colleagues complained that my brain is slow and often mess up and muddle things around.

      There are seevral times, one of the colleagues wanted to frame up. One of the case is he put the contact list of our entire unit camp in my bag. I was very busy at that time and I did not notice. They phone me when I was on off day to ask me if I have accidentally brought home the contact list and they asked me to check my bag. I was shocked to found out that it was in my bag where I am certain that I did not open my bag on that day, only before and after office hour where I change my clothes only and why is the contact list in my bag, I am clueless. One of them wanted to frame me and use my absent-mindedness weak point to set me up.

      Even simple calculation, I am slow in working out. I am good in Maths and POA for calculation with the help of using calculators but they don't allow me to use calculators at work. Some of the colleagues saw me counting figures using my hands and they laughed at me saying to me still a primary school moron. They treated me like an ignorance fool.

      I am worried that this might happen again if I am working in a company/premises in my job career. I am not sure what should I do? I am not sure are there something wrong with my brain? Is there a way to cure such illness?

    • You definitely have no illness, however sometimes we  cant predict how our brain reacts..(once I was in your shoe too ) Why dont you consult a therapist? psychologist ?
      Dont spend money for this. Go with somwone who offer free consulation.

    • Now come to think of it, could it be maybe I am slow in counting numbers? I often rely on calculators. If there are no calculators and counting it mentally, I am slow. For example, without using calculatos, I calculate 50 - 9.90, I have a hard time thinking for about a few mins to solve and answer it wrongly. Not sure if that is the case...:/

      Maybe if I improve my mental sum, can I improve my thinking ability and absent mindness?

      Maybe if someone could work with me, he/she would not stand my slow brain syndrome and that is what happen when I am serving my national service in admin office.

    • when you sort your documents, put the new ones one side, and those to be destroyed one side

      with these two piles, you can go through them one more time to double check yourself

      then ask your supervisor to check first before you destroy

      so at least they can confirm that you have done it correctly
      or if there's any mistake, it's not too late

    • I did that too, putting new files and old files side by side and in the end, there are some old documents in the new files :( I even check carefully, they are still in.

      I remember I asked my supervisor to check, she got annoyed and she said "asked me to check? it is your job okay!"

    • In the aspect of studies, the ones who get As in their A Levels are those who have good memories, not because they are intelligent, but because they can memorise text upon texts. Bec I have seen straight A students who are inarticulate and unintelligible. For yourself, it would be highly possible to train to memorise blocks of texts and even dockets that u come across, memorise their profile and recall them the next day, just to activate the memory area of your mind. I am one of those who don’t believe that a person is born either with a good memory or or a ‘bad’ memory. We can all recall n thus we can remember (unless we are elderly and hv alzheimers).

    • How about slow in learning? I have this syndrome too. Come to think of it if i am working in a packer industry, my boss teach me how to pack goods in a complex way and he/she did it fast. I asked him/her to do it slowly and my boss show me another time. I try my attempt on it and i did it slow and do it wrongly again. I remember i did it in my admin unit and pissed my fellow mates and surpervisor off. if it is in working place, my boss will say this to me:  and the rest of my colleagues will sing na na na goodbye song and they celebrate with beer anyone don't believe me, want to test me out? I am cool!

    • I also have this "illness" ... Sadly it is a character trait . Be very conscious ,learn from errors in the past , be ware that it could be the same scenario , then take efforts to check recheck and prevent ... Best is avoid Similiar jobs in future

    • I don't think there is a cure but rather things that you can do to avoid forgetting to do things. As for ability to react or do tasks, find tools to help you or learn to live with it. Afterall, not everyone are born equals
