Anyone that has ever met Janet will quickly attest to the fact that she is uniquely unforgettable. Even with the brain damage she sustained when she was 17 years old she has a brilliant mind for numbers, being able to immediately tell you the number associated with letters in the alphabet and much more. She tends to ask a lot of questions including frequently asking what the date and time is since her short-term memory limits her ability to retain that type of information for more than 5-10 minutes.She’ll also periodically ask people she meets and people she doesn’t know well what their name is (again) and how they spell it for the same reason. She knows her name and family members’ names and may even remember her mom or dad’s cell phone numbers.
She knows the city she lives in as well. She counts her fingers quickly, sometimes behind her back which looks like she’s wiggling her fingers together with both hands. She sometimes claps and talks/mumbles very quickly. She also taps at her head and lap rapidly and it’s all part of her constant counting that she’s internally consumed with. She also counts her steps as she walks and skips certain steps, depending on the number her count falls on, and has various peculiar quirks of that nature. She loves to laugh and gets excited with things she likes in much the same way a child does with a pleasant surprise.
