2. Infantile Amnesia

Infantile amnesia is the most common type of all amnesia varieties. Do you remember your life before you were around 5 years old? For the vast majority of people, their memories start from around 3-5 years old. Some people do claim to be able to recall their earliest memories, even their births, but even if this is true then they are in the vast minority.

Although people will have some memories after around 3-5 years old, many will still have few memories of their life before around 10 years old. At least, that is, few memories relative to the length of time involved.
