Memory

Hello, I am still abroad, but thought it was time for another post. This time I will talk shortly about a technique for remembering things. This method helped me memorize a whole deck of cards and it is called the linking method. All you will need is a pen and paper. So lets get started.

Write down these words: Newspaper, jelly, orange, bicycle, timber, asphalt, rain, bear, sunglasses, vacation, car, pictures, money, glass, table, salt.

Now, instead of just trying to force the words into your short-term memory, lets try the linking system. Take 2 or 3 of the words at a time and link them to an image. 

For instance: I went out to get my newspaper, but it was covered with jelly that tasted like orange. I looked across the street and saw a kid playing with what looked like a wooden bicycle on the sidewalk.

Just imagining that sequence will remind me of the first 6 words. Try it out for your self. I am also posting a youtube video for those of you that want to learn more. Don't really know when I'll post my next update, but I promise I wont be gone forever. Stay sexy and have a nice day :)

  23. you got to make connectors when remebering things. if a piece of info does not connect to other pieces, it is lost. if you always sytematize your thoughts, you will be a motherfucking genious in no time.

  30. This only works fro those who are visually inclind. You can also associate the names with the noises and it will be much easier to remember, because audio is a huge factor in most everyone.
