How do you remember?

I was thinking today on the morning drive to church that for me, it is generally easier to remember things I have heard than things I have said. How about you?

I am wondering if it is connected to the introvert/extrovert personality type. As you may know, introverts process information better by listening to others and thinking about what they say. Extroverts process information by "talking it out." Perhaps this relates to memory as well.

I am introvert, but I find it easier to remember when I do it for myself. Having said something instead of hearing, I am more likely to remember it. Maybe I am an extrovert in denial?

Well, maybe my theory doesn't hold water. Of course, the data pool is still very small so far.
