The apparent loss or modification of information which was already encoded and stored in long term memory, is termed as forgetting. Its a spontaneous or gradual process in which old memories are unable to recall from memory storage. It also help to reconcile the storage of new information with old. The forgetting may be temporary or permanent.

1)Natural forgetting: The forgetting occurs with the lapse of time, which we dont want to  forget.
2)Morbid/abnormal forgetting: The forgetting occurs in a situation when we want to forget past memories.
3)General forgetting: Total loss of memory in which any sign of memory doesnt remain, is general forgetting.
4)Specific forgetting: The loss of some specific parts of our memory which was previously learnt is specific forgetting.
5)Physical/organic forgetting: The forgetting of memory due to disease or biological malfunctioning is physical forgetting.
6)Psychological forgetting: The forget occurs due to lack of interest, high tempered, conflict, anxiety, emotion etc. is psychological forgetting.
