If you often find yourself forgetting that you made plans with a friend or why you needed to go to the shops, then don't be too hard on yourself - you might be smarter than you think.
 

New research by the University of Toronto found that being forgetful could actually be a sign of greater intelligence.
 

The findings suggest that your memory optimises decision making by only remembering valuable information and forgetting the unimportant details - essentially making room for what matters.
