How to triple your memory by using this trick | Ricardo Lieuw On | TEDxHaarlem

Do you recall studying for your exams? You probably do. But do you remember how you studied, how you memorized French words or the year of the American civil war? Now, that’s probably harder. As a teenager, Ricardo Lieuw On was packing groceries when he knew what he wanted to study: he wanted to learn about learning. He picked up a study in psychology and learned how to reduce his learning time from 3 hours to 1 hour on the same piece of content. He gained the same knowledge in 200% less time. And specially for TEDxHaarlem, he shares the secret of his technique. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

The second time around he gave us over 3 minutes ( 180+ seconds ) which is MORE THAN SIX TIMES AS LONG. tHUS PROVING THAT triple time plus triple time again might = triple memory - or not., POOR SHOW. dO IT PROPER next TIME. = give us 3 minutes the first time.

I agree that we should be thought how to learn. I'm in med school now and I still don't feel like I found my optimum way to learn and now I don't got much time to experiment. ADVICE TO ANYONE STILL IN HIGHSCHOOL: Try out different ways of learning and discover what works best for you before university.

I memorized them in this way: Suddenly there is beard on my face and I am wearing a jacket with a little secret in the pocket. Then I walk to an edge and see nothing is there. After that I drive to a date and this date is to go to a band show their name is Punch. Afterward, I go to get some gas for my car. :)

this works only with word order memorization which means that it's not applicable in real world. in other words, this is nothing more than a cool little trick to impress your friends at a party.

this is how i remembered the words in the correct order. i swear i got it right. a beard is on an object. the object is also wearing a jacket. the bearded object wearing the jacket has a secret that is keeping him on edge. So far he as done nothing about it because he is getting ready for a date. He is taking a girl out to go see this band. unfortunately he got punched in the face while at the concert so he had to 'punch the gas ' to get away.

This is, I'm sorry to say, jobbies. What this technique does is capitalise more fully upon ones innate memory ability, maximising so to speak what the brain does automatically. If one has a good memory it can make it excellent but if one has a dreadful memory it'll only raise it to bad -- but those with dreadful memories tend to devise tricks all by themselves. Like the mnemonic techniques, those with very poor memories can't even remember the mnemonics. Curiously, many of those with disastrous memories have high engineering and logic ability whereas those with profoundly good memories work in law and other logic deficient professions such as the soft sciences.

I was seen this type of video in Telugu few months ago. again now I was seen this video both similar kind of videos. so what I learn in both videos our brains have been same strength in all people. but way of thinking is different and way of using in any kind of activities or works anything else. so what I am saying let's start today to try your mind thinking different to get new something your valuable time. don't waste time. thanks for the mentor in this video because of he was reminded to me.

I've seen this method before..but it's just too random and not meaningful to be useful for me in the long-term. Also: lists are not all I would need to remember..events are what I need to recall.

Let me appeal to deep thinkers: 1. The question: What is ---> the fastest way of learning. A. Answer: The fastest way to learn, is to learn how to learn. 2. What is learning? A. Learning=input. B. Input must be retained, input = memory. C. What drives memory? 3. Memory A. Retained knowledge depends on meaning, motive, and drive. B. Meaning, motive, and drive decides what knowledge is retained, therefore. 4. Learning is personal and dependent upon: A. What you want to know B. Why you want to know it C. What you have to gain or lose 5. Archetypical principles: A. This video is about memory tricks, but the usefulness is limited. We learn that which we seek, and we seek what matters the most. Therefore, motive is principal in learning.it can't be conjured through mental gymnastics, it's internal. An insatiable curiosity to understand gives meaning, insofar as the discovery serves a personal purpose. Period. Without motive, learning is artificial, stagnant. 6. Failed learning. A. Failure to learn is indicative of inadequate passion/motivation. 7. Solution: A. Motive/passion ---> subject matter ---> memory --> learning ---> proficiency ---> career.

Seriously? I remembered more the first time. what kind of system does my brain work in then? I remember saving info in my body parts for a big exam. Tapping fingers and edges and repeating legal paragraphs relating to the terms. Really great TEDtalk though. I love learning about how the majority of ppl in the west behave. Which is why I watch a lot of comedy:)

Nah, but you can't use this to everything - it is a helpful tool where there are no logical connections between the things or they are there but are overly complex and they are not needed for further study, then it's fine if you make up your own story, but if you take a subject like maths, you just can't completely memorize it by made-up stories. The principles are the core of maths, not words to memorize. But, if you take in the real principles and logical connections of the subject, and THEN apply some abstraction to them (i dunno for example our maths teacher used to refer to sets as to sacks of potatoes for showing principles of functions on them) and show the real principle on an abstract thing, then it can be really helpful. I'm often overwhelmed by too much information when trying to learn the true definitions, but if somebody comes and tells me a nice abstract intuition how the thing really works, it is then much easier for me to remember it, and if I want, I can then easily move to the complete exact description when i know what it is about. So a tip from me - if there's a connection between the things, rather try to base the story on how the thing really works, than try to make up your own story how the thing could work in an imaginary world.

This is one method teachers tried to teach me when I was in school. They also taught to make up rhymes with things to remember them as well. But everything become so complicated with the stories that I couldn't remember the full story or what it represented.

one thing i dont like about this, not questioning it's effectiveness, is that they the story is constructed with too many details. in practice, that takes time and the more details to remember, the more each detail becomes fuzzy. second of all, the audience didn't really recall the answers completely on their own. they were guided. what were your knees replaced with? also the first list are not related to each other as much as the second list is. the second one lists a category of body parts. what's the first one anyway? what would convince me is if these memory gurus start letting their audiences challenge them
Fayez Imam 2 months ago
Your choice of words and how you choose to use them in your story depends on you. As he said keep experimenting, do anything which makes it easier for you to remember. You don't really need to a story with very fine details.

I learn by not memorizing but by understanding the concept. This is horrible. When you memorize words, you don't understand. This is why people google! Also, my professor once shared with me, you have to read the book like a story and not like an article. And once I did this method, I started to enjoy reading books.

The problem I have with this is actually creating the stories. See, I did remember the 10 presidents in the right order. However, that took more than 30 seconds. In fact it took 3 minutes for him to tell us that story and for us to process, which is still pretty fast, however that doesn't account for the time that this story took to be fabricated. I don't know about him but just finding the right association for Nixon (as a basic example) would've taken some time for me. I'm not from the US and I don't watch basketball and really there are not many words I know in English or things that come close to Nixon , I have heard of the Nyks (i didnt even know what it stands for or that it is spelled Nyks) so when he said it I did remember it but I would've never came up with it. So in other words coming up with good associations in your mind map is not as easy and straight forward and it might take time or you might think of something that you will simply later forget since it took you a while to think of it in the first place. Thus, the total time of doing such an exercise and remembering 10 things one after the other would still be pretty slow. I'm sure that you will probably get better with it over time but it's still something that would take a pretty good amount of time even if you're trying to remember just 5-10 things in a sequence. The other problem I have is also the stories themselves, sometimes I would try and re-iterate some of the stories (i.e use my body more than once for a story) and that tends to get confusing. Mind you, this is with simple words such as Nixon,John etc, what happens when you are trying to memorize like an equation, a weird abbreviation from a chemistry table and so on, those things are even harder to associate.
