This red dot puzzle tests your ability to recall images and has been shared by thousands online this week.
Those who can easily answer the puzzle may just have an eidetic memory, the ability to recall images with vividness bordering on actual visual perception; also called a photographic memory.
To solve the puzzle you must look at the image above and memorise the red dots, you need to then look at the second image below and do the same.
Puzzle solvers then must put the dots together in their mind to form a letter.
Did you get it right?
If you struggled to answer the puzzle then the ‘Mind Palace’ memory technique, as used by Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, could help improve your memory.
Known at the Method of Loci, the technique has reportedly been used since ancient Roman times, and involves using a known route to aid recollection of often unrelated objects or information.
Ed Cooke, a Grandmaster of Memory and co-founder of online learning site, Memrise, says it’s an incredibly popular method among memorisers.
“The way it works is you get a familiar route in your head – around your home, for example – and at different points along the route you imagine an object placed at that point, and when you come to recall the object you just retrace the route.”
