Word of the Week: Eidetic

Eidetic
as in:“(The Thai government promotes Scrabble as a tool for learning English, although some Thai masters are famous for completing at the highest echelons without speaking or understanding much, if any, of the language, relying on eidetic memory and spatial intelligence. English is just a quarry for the playing chips.)”

Thurman, J. (2009, January 19). Spreading the word: The new Scrabble mania. The New Yorker, 84(44), 28.

See the e-book The Concise Dictionary of Psychology by David Statt.
