11 Secrets to Memorize Things Quicker Than Others

316274 ratings | 9391716 views
We learn things throughout our entire lives, but we still don’t know everything because we forget a lot of information. Bright Side will tell you about 11 simple memorizing tips that will help you remember everything and improve your memory. TIMESTAMPS Why we forget things 1:04 How to remember everything 2:00 How to memorize something quickly 2:30 How to memorize something for a long time 3:20 Try to understand what you learn 4:17 Learn the most necessary information 5:11 Serial position effect 5:45 Interference theory 6:06 Learn opposite things 7:22 Build your own «mind palace» 7:22 Use «nail words» 8:19 Make up stories 8:40 Use a tape recorder 9:10 Visualize 9:51 Choose only the best materials 9:59 SUMMARY - Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly. A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going. - There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something. - To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it. The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes. You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax. Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours. And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information. Do you know any other memorizing tips? If yes, share them in the comment section below!

I had many problems regarding memorization. But two things i found incredibly useful : 1. By focusing on main idea with reading entire piece of writing and excluding other things. 2. The idea of looking to the opposite thing or comparison.

My science teacher will fly through notes and doesn’t even explain 60% of what he’s teaching (I learn through pictures and using my hands) so I find it very hard to know or understand anything that we’re learning in class, I’m also easily distracted so studying my notes doesn’t always work for me. :(

Your brain only need to hear things once, you don’t need to repeat same thing over again, just believing that you can make your brain work with that pattern.

One tip is to take pauses between chunks of information to let it sink in. This also makes you more observant of the information and usually leads to a deeper understanding. Overloading the mind with information is a surefire way to forget information. So reading without pauses is bad imo, the same could be said for watching long videos without pausing it(assuming you want to remember the video). So for instance if you are reading a novel, or even a textbook, read a sentence and summarize it in your own words, pause, read another sentence summarize that sentence and the previous one, and pause then continue. My memory isn't extraordinary, but trying this method I was able to remember 10 sentences or about a page without rereading previous sentences. And honestly I still remember most of what was on that page. I'm not sure if that's because of the memory training I've been doing, but I tend to not think so. I'm sure people can remember much more sentences in there head and juggle them I'm sure I can too because I didn't reach my limit. But I'm still trying to see if I can improve my working memory to make studying super efficient. But that's another story.

I thought this video was for memorization of poems. So, I'm going to test you if you can memorize this. (Not a poem Don't expect it to be) In my mind I feel forgetful People have secret powerful minds I spend part of my time using my gadgets I think I should stop and I can't. If I lose my memory I lose my life So I should focus To feel alive *Did you memorize it?* *Good!* If it took you below: -1 minute - to memorize Then you have a *POWERFUL* brain. -5 minutes - to memorize Then you are great at memorizing. -10 minutes - to memorize Then you are fine at memorizing. -20 minutes - to memorize Then you are quite slow at remembering, you have an Normal brain and it's fine. -50 minutes - to memorize Then you are not good at memorizing, you might have a short-term memory brain.(Dont worry you are still normal) -3 hours - to memorize Then you are *BAD* at memorizing...... seriously this one is easy...... you are *BROKEN* . -*NEVER AT ALL* - to memorize Then you are too lazy to do this test or never read this comment. *Have a nice day and have fun with everybody, Don't lock yourself in a high security cage break out and reveal who you are.*

I find it weird though, i have a poor memory retention and woud hardly remember things - like when cooking - i even forget i am cooking not until I smell something burning. Even shared stories - as if i have heard it the first time. What i usually remember are things/events that hurt me - so i guess emotional state has something to do with long-term memory as well.

Thx Bright Side. Third time I've heard of spaced repetition within the past week. Apparently it works! I had already had in mind to find and dust off one of my old tape recorder and burn audio to CDs to listen to while driving.

I always forget things l don’t really need. My brain just seems to sort out unnecessary things. I just remember things for exams. Which is kinda bad because I can’t remember movies after watching them that much.. ://
