Stuff We Should Have Been Taught in School: Memorization Techniques

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the technique remains the same. If something comes up in your day that you want to remember for tomorrow it gives you the tools to do so. I use it quite often to recall something that I heard about on a podcast that I want to check out later when I have time. You start to naturally convert stuff into images. It is kind of cool. All the seemingly useless pop culture knowledge comes into play. I used the famous image of Lady Gaga in her meat dress to remember the great state of Delaware (deli-wear).

How do you remember all the images? 

 

Maybe I can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday because I remembered some quote I read.

You make them as memorable as they need to be. One way of doing that is to exaggerate the images you use. Make something huge if it is normally small or tiny if it is normally large. Once you lock in the images you will find that they are easy to recall.

I think a story or order must help too. 50 images is hard to remember unless they are all linked. 

I definitely remember numbers by dates. I’m sure why is helps to add and 1956-1978 1965-1974 to remember 56786574.

It is surprisingly easy to remember the images in order; even if you don't link them all up.

I think I’d have trouble with 50 images. But I’ll try it. You mean images in your head. Like for Texas a giant Steak?

Start by memorizing the first ten. I needed to build up confidence that I could do it. I think I did 10 one day, 10 the next day, and 30 the day after that.  For Texas I used a cowboy hat but use whatever comes easiest to you.

 

Alabama - Osama Bin Laden (Allah) standing beside Bam Bam (Bama) from the flintstones.

Alaska - Snow and Ice

Arizona - Chuck D rapping By The Time I Get To Arizona

Arkansas - Bill Clinton

California - Arnold Schwarzenegger saying Cal-E-fornia.

Colorado - former Broncos quarterback John Elway and his big buck teeth.

Connecticut - John Elway getting his hair cut by Lady Gaga.

Delaware - already mentioned in previous post.

Florida - Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino in Scarface. Michelle's blonde hair connects with Gaga's blonde hair if needed.

Georgia - Ray Charles singing Georgia on My Mind. I don't even know how the song goes.

Hawaii - Palm trees with giant potatoes hanging off them. The potatoes connect to the next state. You can also add Ray if you need to.

Idaho - A giant potato. They call it the potato state. That is all I know about Idaho.

Illinois - Michael Jordan dribbling a basketball sized potato in his Chicago Bulls uniform.

North Dakota - Dakota Johnson topless

South Dakota - Dakota Johnson's ass in the Social Network
