> What about those with POOR memories

You probably don't have poor memory: you're just poor at remembering (forming memories).

There are all sorts of tricks and mnemonic techniques for remembering (and being able to recall) arbitrary information. It's even easier when you get to choose the password. For example, a fictitious site rainbow.com could be be remembered with "Rainbow wankers" -> "Rainbow Wang Cares About Hoovering Up My Password" -> "RWCAHUMP"
