HOW TO BOOST YOUR MEMORY
Make a big memory trace
Try to think of what it feels like to be there, what it looks like to be there, what it smells like to be there. What are you feeling right now? Get a multisensory experience that you can put down in the brain that’s as large as possible.
Write things down
Realise how fallible memory is, and that you’re going to overestimate remembering things in the future, and make notes as quickly as possible and without anyone else, so your memories haven’t been corrupted by other people’s stories.
Make it weird
Try to make associations between things that aren’t normal. Make the memory weird and exceptional. Your memory is better at remembering exceptional things because you’re engaging with the information for longer.
- Be cautious
- If it is important to specifically remember something, think about where did this come from?
- Be curious
- Other people get things wrong about their memories, so ask them where they came from.
- Be kind
- Just because someone says something that isn’t true, doesn’t mean they’re lying. They could simply have a false memory.
