Kinesthetic Memory

A few days ago I was in my bank cashing a check. As ID, the teller said to sweep my Instant Cash... er, Well's Fargo Debit Card... through the slot and enter my PIN. I've had the same PIN # for 25 years, and I couldn't remember it. I tried three times. But I know the number, it had to be because the buttons were not the same. The next day I went to an ATM and sure enough my fingers entered the PIN quickly and accurately.

I've always been a highly kinesthetic person. I will often remember poise and touche far easier than names and faces. But this was weirder than most. Maybe I don't want to know the number, I just want to let my fingers do the walking...

I'm curious if anyone else has had that experience.
