I am sure that you intuitively know where you placed every tool so that retrieval is fast and efficient. It's the same for everyone but what I found interesting is when our son came to my shop for a project and without asking he was able to locate the tools that he needed. It must be DNA related.
This also explains why at my age moving to a new shop would be a disaster. The burnt in memory of where each tool or fastener resides would be lost.
