Can you remember where you were on Wednesday the 30th of June? If you cannot remember exactly where you were, chances are you’d have a better idea if you had 4 locations to choose from.

If you are sure you know where you were, apparently you’re much more likely to be right when you guess. However, a group of Australian students was only 64% right when they were asked. This shows that we are capable of making mistakes as far as remembering where we were is concerned.

Making errors is fairly common. When some participants of a study were asked to recall where they were at a certain time and date, the incorrect location was often picked.

Of course, knowing where you were on a certain date can help you if you have to prove where you were, by law. However, technology can help us with this. Many people now have trackers on their phones so they can be reached by others. They can also take a look at where they were at a certain time on a certain date.

More research on how our memory works and how lab studies can be used in the real world needs to be understood. In the meantime, we can rely on apps to tell us where we really are when our memory fails us.
