Memory is what we store in our mind. We store what we learn, use, apply and experience. It is the store room of learning, setbacks, emotions, rise or fall, good and bad experiences, impressions, relationships, etc. and thus access to this store area for stocking and use for application of it is very essential. This whole process is termed as Memory. There can be issues with storing information in it or sometimes problems in retrieving information from this store house. We call it as retention or memory problem. It can be for various reasons - lack of concentration, lack of urge to retrieve, nervous break downs & disturbances, stress, anxiety, etc...
The correct use of it for meaningful purpose is called Application. The impression of this judicious application is termed as intelligence. Each one has different areas of application of intelligence. For a Chartered accountant his memory related to logic is important.
