It’s Good To Know: The Vus

In psychology, terms used to describe:

  • Déjà vu: remembering having seen something before. In French, this literally means ‘already seen’, though in usage it is basically equivalent to déjà vécu (already lived).
  • Presque vu: almost, but not quite, remembering something. This is the “on the tip of my tongue” feeling.
  • Jamais vu: never seen, it’s used to describe any familiar situation which is not recognized by the observer.
