I have one and use it all day long. I am used by other agents to recall info for them. Side note I am the official designated keeper of all family history, time dates, places, names, what you were wearing at the beach in 1964.

Having an eidetic memory can be an advantage or disadvantage, depending upon the circumstances.  Just ask Dr. Sheldon Cooper or Dr. Spencer Reid.

This question reminded me of a time when I went to a hardware store and a salesman came up to me and said he had a photographic memory and asked me to describe what I needed. After I told him what I wanted he ran off in another direction. After what seemed like a long time I went looking for the salesperson and found him talking to another customer. When I approached him he asked me what I needed and I said " Your the one with the photographic memory?"
