My sense of direction and ability to orient my own self in space is absolutely terrible. I probably couldn’t navigate my way out of a paper bag.
But my spatial rotation skills? They’re quite good.
I remember getting a pretty high score on this on that aptitude test thing I did in Seattle back in 2005, too.
I have no idea why I can correctly mentally rotate block structures but can’t retrace my own damn steps to get home. Different spatial processes, I suppose.
