How To Remember Numbers

Visitors: 161

This article will show you a simple memory enhancing solution. Using a word association technique you can create images in your head then link them together to recall the numbers easily.

What do you rhyme with “one"?

Now write down the name of the image which first comes to mind.

I think of a “gun", like a six shooter from an old western movie.

Now continue down the numbers and write down the rhyming word which comes to you.

What do you rhyme with “two"?

I think of a “shoe" like a red stiletto.

What do you rhyme with “three"?

I think of a “tree" in the forest.

What do you rhyme with “four"?

I think of a “door" like the one at the front of my house.

What do you rhyme with “five"?

I think of a “hive", as in bee hive.

What do you rhyme with “six"?

I think of “mix" like a mixing bowl in the kitchen.

What do you rhyme with “seven"?

I think of “heaven" with stars of a night.

What do you rhyme with “eight"?

I think of an “ape" like an orangutan

What do you rhyme with “nine"?

I think of “dine" just like a table set for eating.

What do you rhyme with “ten"?

I think of “hen" like a chicken.

Now say I want to remember the code to the alarm for entry into my business.

I wish to remember 258, and seeing 2 as a shoe, 5 as a hive, and 8 as an ape.

I exaggerate the three images and link them together one after the other so that the situation becomes even more memorable.

Add color, action, humor, and even horror to exaggerate each image.

In summary

I would visualize myself standing outside my business.

I imagine a shiny new red stiletto shoe, then a hive dropping down onto it releasing bees and covering it with honey. Finally an ape standing on it and getting stuck, jumping around wearing a red stiletto.

I will be able to recall this strange and funny image each and every time I stand outside my business.
