Would you tell anyone if you had a PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY?

I mean, if you had ANY type of "super" ability, would you tell anyone?

If you would, who?

And why?

Update:

You know, there are people with extraordinarily good memories, but it has been proven that no one has photographic memory.

    Nope, I wouldn't tell anyone.

    Wouldn't want to stand apart from everyone else.

    Would just want to be left alone.

    A photographic memory is not a super ability. I have a partial photographic memory, and it's really helpful. If I had a real super ability, what I would do and who I would tell would really depend on the ability.

    I DO have photographic memory...really I don´t like to go around yelling it but what´s the problem of saying it if it´s true? Of course I hate people who envy others but u should consider that everyone has abilities, but not many develop them properly

    It would honestly depend on the ability - if it were so amazing (like being able to fly, or controlling the weather) that the government would suddenly become verrrry interested in me, I would definitly keep quiet. If it were something smaller, say the ability to read minds, or move things with my mind, I might tell people to show off just a little bit ;) .

    I'd have a very hard time keeping that a secret. I'd tell my husband and those in my close circle. It would be smarter to keep it a secret, but it would be hard not to show off the ability and use it for good. I'd love to have psychic abilities.
