Memory Methods

 

Techniques > Memory Methods

 

Human memory is terribly fallible and can be very annoying. You can hear a person's name and forget it in very short order. A single word can be at the tip of your tongue. And whole episodes of your life can be forgotten.

Fortunately there are specific methods that you can use to significantly increase what you remember. Here are some of the good ones:

People who are good at these are sometimes called mentalists and can display seemingly-superhuman memory skills (where it seems you can make a good living from standing on the stage and reciting the phone book :).

Just using these as described can give amazing results. However, to get really good and be able to remember all kinds of things easily, nothing beats practice and rehearsal.

Fortunately, there are always many things happening in our lives that we can practice at remembering, from laws of physics to names of people to news headlines.

Rehearsal requires recalling the items remembered multiple times after you have committed them to memory. Do this several times immediately then in increasingly stretched-out times, for example after an hour, four hours, eight hours, a day, two days, a week, and so on.
