What about the brain makes me not remember password to my account until I actually have to put it in? ?

For example: if someone asked me to write down the password to my bank app write now, I could not. I’d mix up some numbers and letters but once I go to the actual bank app, I unconsciously put my password in without thinking about it so is this because my password hasn’t been stored in my long term memory yet. I’ve had this password for a while.0

    That's a good question to post in Psychology. There are definitely times we (humans) find it easier to remember something if we're not focusing on it, than if we are.


    Move your question to Social Science>Psychology as it's currently in Yahoo Products>Yahoo Widgets and not applicable to this subcategory (and thus decreases your chances of getting many useful answers).

    You can move your question by clicking Edit (pencil icon for mobile)>Edit category just beneath your question, then selecting the category in which it is better suited.
