The Cause Of Not Knowing The Cardinal Directions In A New Place?
, It seems that I’m not the only one who’s had an incident like mine,
Not knowing the cardinal directions in a recently visited place is a natural thing. Because it has not been stored in memory in our brains. Of course it takes time to get used to a new place.
Unlike the situation if we have been in that place for a long time. With habituation and daily life, over time the memory will be stored in the brain. However, if you have lived in a place for a long time and you always have difficulty recognizing areas, directions and getting lost, you may have memory problems.
One of the most common memory problems is dementia. Usually often occurs in people who are old or have problems with the brain. You can read more about dementia on this page.
I hope this helps.
