Do you have a good sense of direction? Or do you find you get lost easily while looking for places?

Some people have a natural sense of direction, some are the opposite--which one are you?

I will admit I do.
I know where the four points of the earth are.....for some reason, like a human compass.
Trouble is?....no one really ask's :) maybe I should just tell people which way they are facing lol...lol...lol
I have to answer my own question here, as so many of you say yes! I am so hopeless with sense of direction -but it must be hereditary as I remember years ago, my mother ended up under the Sydney Harbour Bridge instead of on it and she was also hopeless at finding her way.
I actually -before GPS came out, have sat in the car and cried several times as I was so lost and had no idea where I was -I just seem to have absolutely no sense of direction.

I think it is something one is born with, so don't feel too bad.Really :) hugs.

Yes I do. Much better than my husband. But men and their weakness with asking directions. Always a reason for argument
I'm pretty good at finding my way and used to be a wiz at reading maps too. Now I've gotten lazy with a GPS so am loosing it a bit.
I think so. I generally know where is North and so I could figure out the others. It's easy when living on the East Coast of Australia though - face the ocean, north is left, south is right.
I hope I got that right!
Absolutely not. That is why I love my GPS.

My husband is one of those people that have a natural sense of direction. I, on the other hand, often need a map and a GPS. I guess opposites do attract!

Have to admit honestly do not have a sense of direction.
Some of my best experiences and unique finds have come from getting lost.
That's a positive.
I always find my way back , all good.

Very much so. Comes in handy in a new city, when travelling!
yes I do, I can find my way to a place a year or more later without any trouble.
and for a first time going somewhere use your street directory
No, I always find myself horribly lost - I once tried to walk to the city after a job interview and found myself several more kms out of it - it was a truly depressing and distressing day - although I did get the job.
Yes I have a good sense of direction, I usually look to see the natural route that a particular place is situated in relation to where I am coming from, perhaps stopping once to check my location on the map I may be using.
From then I on I can continue without mistake.

Certainly not when my husbands driving, & asks me to read a street directory.HELP! Iím hopeless! He ends up having to pull over to the side of the road to read the street directory himself. Even the GPS gets it wrong! I can find my way around Sydney on foot better than my husband, as Iím always showing him short cuts to get from A to B. On the other hand, I'm always getting lost on cruise ships, so I can hardly go anywhere by my self on board.
99% of the time - Yes. Although that 1% is really, really annoying when my natural compass is on the blink!
Dreadful. My brother is the same. Must be genetic. It is the source of untold mirth for my other half - he can find his way anywhere, anytime, anyhow . . . even overseas. *pshaw*

In the southern hemisphere a great one but once I cross the divide it gets all screwwy
I have a terrible sense of direction and always have had.

Yes absolutely. I only need to go to somewhere once and can remember how to get there. I was in Prague once and then went back 9 years later and still remembered which direction I needed to go.
I had a great sense of direction up to menopause, I suddenly get lost very quickly and have no sense of direction at all now. I was worried thinking maybe it was an early sign to dementia. But nothing has changed so far, its a cruel disease and I dont want it.
No, not really, I really need to study a map, especially if it is an area I'm not familiar with.
