I can't remember verbal instructions unless I take notes. I have to be able to see it.
Also, I have to know how a word or name is spelled, similar to the Mark/Marc story above.

I'm the same way! I write down EVERYTHING, and people will say, "Oh, it's really easy, it's just 3 turns" and I say "Yes, I'll just write them down." People look at me like I'm dumb when I make a list with only 3 items on it, least I know that's what I must do in order to not make any mistakes. It's not anyone's business but my own; I don't know why people are always telling me I don't need to write things down. How do they know what I need? weirdos. heh

When I was a kid I used to trace words as I heard them on the nearest surface. I didn't even usually realize I was doing it.
