No Sense of Direction

Last night, I had a conversation with a friend about how does one tell North, South, East, West.  Before this conversation, I assume people knew their location based on landmarks, street location, or the sun. I was really surprise and intrigued when he told me it was based on a "knowing" like a magnetic sense.  Now I wonder, am I the only one who have no sense of direction and how do one become aware of this magnetic sense? 


  1. I have a terrible sense of direction. I live on the waterfront so that makes it really easy for me LOL.

  2. trick I use is to look for a satellite dish. I know Directv dish must point
