I think many people have perfect pitch, without knowing it, or haveing the other half of the coin, nameley playing an instrument....

I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world with this talent.

Can you hear music in your head like you can recall smells?
I can.
But for a pitch excercise, try to remember a Shadows tune, say something like Apache... I bet you that first note you hear in your mind, is as spot on as if you tried to recall the smell of vinigar...

Studying an instrument gives the other half, as you get a second reference for the notes...

It is a standard part of musical exams too... I studied a little bit of classical guitar through Trinity Colege of Music, London.

Yes. ... Most musicians that can play reaonably well do have the ability to tune their instruments. As a French Horn player in my high school band, I developed that ability myself = to be able to tune for local conditions without the aid of a pitch pipe or tuning fork, etc. But I would never claim to be "perfect".

I do believe that "perfect pitch" can be learned or developed with practice, although the exact accuracy of the results may vary.
