What are memory tricks

Memory tricks

Memory tricks ...

Elephants are said to have a good memory. Little is known about other animals. Perhaps that's because it can end badly if you teased an elephant twenty years ago and it remembers it the next time you meet it. Such factors as anger promote memory in humans as well. It is easier to remember a lot with emotions. But you can also do without it.

A good memory is not just a matter of training, but rather of method. Amazing results can be achieved with simple tricks.

This page offers an introduction to the topic.

If I give you twenty terms, can you repeat them in the correct order after half an hour? Can you memorize an agenda? Or a shopping list? Can you easily remember names and faces?

This is not a problem with the right memory tricks.
Even if you previously thought your memory was bad.

How do memory tricks work?

It sounds banal, but we often don't make the most of our brain's capabilities. Why is that?

The human brain is not a uniform pulp, but consists of several clearly distinguishable parts with partly different functions. The abilities of our brain are also not a uniform pulp, but consist of different, clearly distinguishable talents. Sometimes you can even assign individual talents to specific parts of the brain.

The hemispheres of the brain

The division of the brain into two halves with different functions is particularly clear. The left half of the brain is the seat of the language center and thinks in condensed and abstracted content, i.e. concepts, words and numbers. The right half of the brain, on the other hand, thinks directly in sensory content, for example in images. She thinks holistically and intuitively and is the seat of the imagination. For example, drawing is a typical right brain domain.

The function of the human brain is strongly influenced by the requirements of culture and upbringing, gender roles and many other things. Most people have developed a strong conceptual thinking dominance. Interestingly, this has the consequence that our brain also tries to solve problems with conceptual, left-brained thinking, which would actually be the very own field of activity of the right hemisphere.

There is enormous potential for performance hidden in the resolution of such misallocations. A striking example is the tenfold (!) Increase in the performance of programmers through superprogramming. Other examples can be made usable through thought methods or, as we want to do here, with memory tricks.

Use different channels

If we want to memorize something, we do it much better if we use several input channels for the brain. A conceptual content that you want to remember therefore also includes images, emotions and perhaps other sensory impressions such as smells or even temperature perception.

Most memory tricks do just that. They have a simple system ready for you to link your memos and any pictures.

Here are some examples from our memory training:

The first method is learning with a picture grid. The advantage of this procedure is that you not only reliably remember the contents and the order, but you can also say what position it was in an overall list.

The second method, the Roman Forum method, is particularly useful, for example, to prepare a lecture or to memorize a list of sales arguments. However, what you are remembering here is not the number of an argument, only the order in which they appear.

Even very young children learn to memorize something in connection with their fingers and to recall it. Basically, the Roman Forum method is not much different. Memory tricks are easy. Otherwise they wouldn't work either. You will learn memory tricks quickly and easily with our training.

A very simple trick is the simple chaining of pictorial ideas with one another to form groups of images that are easy to remember.
