The human mind is fascinating. Specifically, great communication within our mind. Mendel Kaelen compares the human brain to a snow-covered mound,

“Think of your brain like a snow-covered mound, and thoughts like a slippery slope. As the sled consecutively descends the hill a small number of major lanes will emerge from the snow. And every time a new sled goes down, it’ll be pulled into the existing lanes, almost like a magnet. Over time it becomes more and more difficult to cross a hill in any other way or in a different direction. ”

The purpose of Kaelen’s interview is to think of new ways to temporarily soften the ice. Kaelen said,

“The old trails are disappearing, and suddenly the sled can go to other places, explore new places, and in fact, build new roads.”

“The ability to move an ice globe, disrupt unhealthy thought patterns and create space for flexibility – then patterns and narratives with more oil are more likely to come together as the ice lasts longer.”

So, how can we hold our brains allowing deep-wearing connections to disappear and new connections built? The answer is quite simple. We need to change the way we store information in our minds.

Let’s explore 5 ways to memorize memories that will change the way you think and remember details.

  1. Build a Memory Palace
    What’s going on?
    The loci method (aka memory palace) is a method of enhancing memory using visual perception using local memory. It uses general information about your environment to quickly remember details. That is how Cicero spoke in an ancient interview called De Oratore.
    “You memorize places in a room and then later go back to those places to find the data you want to remember.”

For example
A simple 5-step example, in the form of a Wiki, can be found at Artofmemory.com.

Let’s look at the steps:

Step 1. Select an area you know well. For example, your house or office.
Step 2. Edit the route and select specific locations on your route. For example, your front door, bathroom, etc.
Step 3. Decide what you want to memorize. For example, geography, item list, test answers, etc.
Step 4. Put one or two objects in your mind’s eye, and place them in your memory. Exaggerate your photos. For example, use nudity or obscene images that you force on your mind.
Step 5. Make the image mnemonic.

  1. Memorization
    What’s going on?
    Mnemonic is a memory tool that helps to store and / or restore information. Mnemonic programs are techniques used carefully to improve memory by helping us use information already stored in long-term memory to make memorization easier.
    How can you use it?
    Mnemonics uses retrieval tracks to enter information into our brains that allows for better storage and retrieval of information. The trick is to learn how to easily create memorization.

Goal: Create a mnemonic to memorize Caribbean countries (countries you just need to learn).

Step 1. Map view – list each country (selected five).

Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico.

Step 2. Write the first letter of each country face up.

C

UJ

H

UD

P

Step 3. Create a sentence or phrase.

Chicks

Well

Hate

To do

Exercise

  1. Mnemonic Peg program
    What’s going on?
    According to Artofmemory.com, the mnemonic peg system is a memorizing system and works by remembering a list of words that are easy to associate with the numbers they represent.These are the anchors of the system.

How can you use it?
The trick is to create a Number Rhyme System for each number with a mnemonic keyword.

For example
Let’s look at an example of the Number Rhyme program:
0 = hero

1 = gun

2 = shoe

3 = tree

4 = door

5 = nest

6 = sticks

7 = heaven

8 = gate

9 = line

Another process similar to the Peg program is the Number Shape System. Here you provide memorized images based on number shapes.

  1. Wrapping
    What’s going on?
    Chunking is a way of remembering large pieces of information by combining them into smaller pieces of information. We can only remember the details when we put the small pieces together to see the whole picture.

For example
Let’s take a simple example using a nine-digit number.

Step 1. What number are you trying to remember?

081127882

Step 2. Cut the number into small pieces by folding.

081 – 127 – 882

“Piano teachers will first show students the full song. Then they will ask their students to practice one measure at a time. Once the component has been studied and neural connections in the brain have been established, students then move on to the next scale. After all the chunks are played separately, they are glued together until the whole piece is assembled. ”

  1. Learning transfer
    What’s going on?
    A transfer of learning is a way of learning something in one place and applying it to another. The authors of Thinking at Every Desk, Derek and Laura Cabrera inform us about the transfer of education,

“If a student has a high ability to transfer, he can learn one thing and teach himself another 10, 50, or a hundred.”

How can you use it?
There are two specific ways in which it can be used:

Transfer Direct (aka Far Transfer). Consider learning something in school and then applying it in another grade or later in life.
Horizontal Transfer (aka Near Transfer). Consider reading a concept in history and applying it in math.

Important
The key to using the techniques discussed here is to remember that we need to think critically about information.

We cannot simply repeat information to our brain by memorizing. We need to change the way we think. We have to find a way to “move the ice globe” in our minds or soften the ice so that we can create new ways of learning.

Or, as Derek and Laura Cabrera say, we should add “Thinking” to this figure,

“Information X Thinking = Knowledge”
