New research reveals when it comes to remembering things, men don't live up to the challenge.

The Daily Mail reports Norwegian University of Science and Technology Professor Jostein Holmen's research showed men are more forgetful than women.

The research was done through the health study HUNT3.  Researchers asked nine questions based off memories such as remebering someone's name.

Of the nine questions asked men said they had trouble remembering the topics of eight of them. 

Holmen said age doesn't matter.  Men could be in the thirties or even in their sixties and the result are still the same that men forget more.

The study also revealed forgetness among other groups such as people who suffer from anxiety and drepession and those who have the least education.
