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

  • Am Vor 4 years

    TEDx TalksTEDx Talks

    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. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx

I’m 75 and I love to keep learning and growing. One word of caution though: there is not one single method, including yours, that works for everyone. There is no single best way. A lot depends on being able to imagine and then finding your own way, as you found yours. These may be tools we can all use, but they are not the only way it happens, and for some people, maybe not the best.

This is a good method for memorising lists of unrelated items, but it doesn’t account for the fact that most things that we learn are also first UNDERSTOOD, not just memorised. In fact, understanding what you want to remember is the first step that you should do.

The first time through was easier for me and I got all 10 correct. My method: I broke up the words into 3 groups of three and then the last word by itself. (Much easier to remember small groups than one long list). I repeated each group several times in my head to get the order down and visualized each word in the group. 🧔🏻‍♂️🔧🧥 🤐🔪🚫 📅🥁🥊. ⛽️ 1st group, (Beard object jacket). 2nd group (secret edge nothing) 3rd group (date band punch) And gas ⛽️ at the end to fuel the whole idea.

A month after I was released the entire training site was shut down due to illegal activity and all the students had to find their way back to their hometown. Everthing happened on purpose even though I wanted to drive trucks. But know I'm doing something far more better than driving trucks I'm walking with Jesus and doing things that bring internal fulfillment and purpose.

Whenever you connect a piece of information to something meaningful you will remember it much easier. Think of stories about your childhood and how easy it is to remember stuff. Also there’s nothing wrong with rote memorisation it worked for people like Einstein, and Newton. As an example of the stories way of remembering I remember our telephone number from when I was 12 years old. I also remember the phone number of a large winery in our area lol why? Because it was one digit off of our number. We would get people dialling the wrong number all the time. So I remember my number, the winery’s number and the name of that winery lol. This is how people remember things better than any other way. Also, it’s easier to remember things if you stop relying on technology to do it for you. This translates to or spills over into other areas of life. Its ironic but the more you rely upon technology the dumber you get lol. When I was a teenager I new the telephone number of my house, my best friends house, plus about a dozen girls phone numbers lol. Why? Because I had to lol. Today I routinely have to look into my phone for my own phone number when filling out forms lol. Why? Because I don’t have to remember any numbers they’re all in my phone lol. I actually don’t know the number of the landline at my house lol why? Because it’s in my favourite’s list which is basically speed dial. I hit the button that says home and it dials for me. So if I don’t have my phone I’m lost and confused lol. We are all relying on technology way to much to our detriment. I’ve gone back to writing everything down in a notebook and I’ve discovered that I’m getting my memory skills back. I am able to remember things concerning my other activities in life and also peoples names and phone numbers as well as birthdays and other special things without my phone lol. Just by writing something down with a pen or pencil I commit it to my memory better than if I just input it into my phone. Try it and see if you find your brain working better. See your brain is like any other muscle if you don’t use it or exercise it, it will atrophy and not work as well as you would like. I’m finding my vocabulary is getting back to where it used to be which is full of really interesting words that I can use in all sorts of ways and people think I’m way smarter than I really am lol. I want to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year 🥳

I was able to remember 9/10 words in the first attempt because I knew the strategy he explained later on. I had read this in a book when I was in class 4th I guess. In the book we had to remember 30 items and use our house as an example to fit every item at every corner of the house. I still remember few of the items from the list. This actually works great.

Nice talk. In recent years, many schools have taken to "visualization" to enable students to learn and retain the information for longer periods of time. This also goes with the belief in psychology, that most people have a good eidetic memory, so people can easily relate to information which is shown in graphic form, than in letters / alphabetic characters. This is why story books for very young kids are always pictorial and not verbose, as it's for adults. Besides making learning more fun through pictures, it also helps kids understand and retain the information better. The same goes for comic strips and such. Moreover, there are many tutorial websites / mobile apps, which present complex theoretical concepts pictorially / graphically, which makes them easier to understand and relate to. This is how education should be imparted. Also, as Ricardo rightly says, people have forgotten the art of remembering things. There was a time I could remember all the phone numbers, birthdays, etc. of my near & dear ones. But, after the "smartphone culture" was unleashed upon us, it's hard for me to remember even my secondary mobile numbers :-)

I remember memorizing the whole periodic table in what is suggested in this video in my high school years. But the fact of the matter is if I am going to remember everything I want to remember by authoring a corresponding story will it be practical?is it not even becoming counterproductive ? The reason we pay money to novel writers is that it is a gift given to few talented persons, and it takes time and energy to do it. So no matter how hard we try to frame it, practice, repetition and hard work are the key to memorization.

This is a good video about memory power improvement. In real life scenario, when you meet group of people in which more than 2 persons first name is same and their last name may e different, it would be difficult to remember their names. Especially this might have come across many of us during the teleconference/face to face meeting During that time , Concertante on your valuable points rather then spending effort on calling people on their names. However good approach in the meeting is that to call the people in their names.

Given enough time investment, you can create a weird story for just about any information. The main problem I have with this is the extra level of indirection between request and retrieval of information. Makes it: 1. Take a few moments longer to recall than if it were really burned into memory. 2. Makes it harder to use as a foundation for other knowledge. Example: If you have to think "velocity" as a burning meteor falling towards earth at a given speed and direction... Well you have to re-invoke that imagery every time you look at equations using vectors. It's like your brain is running on a scripting language rather than something closer to the metal, because of the extra layer of abstraction.

The visualization is a great method especially for those with good imagination, I was already using it without knowing in the first 10 words and got them all right, plus making the words groups , in the first 5 words i imagined myself wearing a jacket, so i took it from my face downwards, my "beard" is an "object" and i am wearing a "jacket" which has a "secret" pocket and "edge" then the next 3 and said to myself no one (nothing) will "date" a whole "band", and the last two i punched the air so i remember it and the only word I memorized was gas. It varies from one to another, but it is very efficient way overall, as for his story i memorized them by listening only to the way he elaborate and repeats which is another way combined with visualization, good job I myself got experience at the end, thanks.

I'm gonna be kind of a doomer but bear with me: I'm a med student and I'm always on the lookout for any effective memory techniques out there. I've tried this one before, in fact, I could memorise the 10 words at the beginning with this technique. Sadly, it's been my experience that this is very effective for simple knowledge and lists of things that can easily be correlated in a bizarre story. Furthermore, unless you repeat this bizarre story frequently, it won't become long term memory. In addition to that, you actually need time and creativity (which means a cognitive investment in itself) to create a compelling, memorable, bizarre story, which are two things you might just not have at hand depending on the situation. How could it be possible to create bizarre stories to remember all the classification criteria for intrauterine growth restriction types 1, 2, 3 and 4, the antibiotic schema for 15 clinical situations, the normal value range for every parameter in a complete hemogram, and the formulas you need to correct a sodium/potassium imbalance in a chronic renal patient? I'm sadly convinced that if you can do that, then you could remember the data as is.

I remember so much from school, I was drilled A student who additionally was remembering things, learning things for fun and because I thought I would need it in future. When I was 13 I remembered all american states in alphabetical order on one summer vacation day because I was bored and I thought it would prove to be useful in life as America is influential country in the world. I lived in the Balkans in Europe. I didn't use such methods or anything. I repeated until I had it memorised once and for all. It took maybe an hour or something. Sometimes I recall it to see if I still can do it and I always do it very quickly speaking, counting them automatically without any imagination (I have great imagination, but here it's not necessary for some "tricks" or whatever). Until day of today, today I'm 29, I can recite them all perfectly and know where they are, even though alphabetical order is not intuitive way for finding them all on map. Don't go shortway, if your goal is permanent learning. Also reciting out loud can be useful for memorising the melody of what you are saying. This is just one example, but a good example of boring facts that you can remember if you put mindwork to it and have a longterm goal. PS, the experience of excersise from this video was a bit PsYcHeDeLiC... 😋

Summary of this video- Just connect the information you learn, information that is connected,acts as a structure that holds one information with another and helps brain remember easily. Imagine you driving three vehicles one by one and then connecting the vehicles with one another and driving one of the vehicle easily. Now imagine you holding three objects and then making the objects sticky and connecting the objects and holding them easily then.

The problem is information has expanded at an unprecedented rate in the last 40 years. To become a doctor 70 years ago was easier because there was less information to absorb and remember. Same for engineering or accounting or physics or biochemistry. Further, there was no tv or internet before the 1950s, so one could apply themselves to absorbing knowledge, repeating it, and committing to memory. The point is to decide what is worth learning and memorizing. Our brains have a limitation to what they can memorize and recall at will. Time also places a limit on what we can commit to memory. How many weird images can we hold in our minds? Some years ago, I decided to exercise my memory.....I set myself a few memory challenges. - Jesus's 12 apostles - all the books of the bible - the order of planets from the sun. - taxonomy categories in order - all US presidents - all Australian Prime Ministers (I am Australian) - the 50 US states - the 55 countries of Africa, and then all countries of the world. I was not good at memorizing stuff at school, and still am not that good. But I use the weird imagery technique, partially. I also use chunking and looking for patterns in lists.... I remember some of the US POTUSs as a raft made of wood that has been hardened, then cooled, and vacuum cleaned to carry a sick rooster. Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, FDR I could go on. ...... but what is the point? I work in health care and see upwards of 40 new people most weeks. It is better I improve my skill at remembering their names, their spouse and children's names, and their health ailments. People are much more impressed when I do this, than reciting 46 POTUSs. I note if someone really gets my attention, I have no trouble remembering their name and condition. Sometimes try as I might, I cannot commit a patient's children's names ot memory.....so I write them down at the top of the pt notes. When memory is overtaxed, write things down..... :) It shows you care......

Memorization is an important tool, like a muscle, the more you use it the better it gets. Many apps actually undermine your ability to memorise, so use only the most practical apps such as when is the next bus or train due. That way your brain still has to work

I remember similar system is mentioned in the book how to develop super power memory. It is called peg system and the link system . The book I purchased was for 30 inr. The seller was quoting 50, I asked for 25 , he said take it for free however settled for 30. The story method has limitations. Even by link method and peg method you have to practice a lot. Interest is very important in memory.

Dear Mr. Ricardo Lieuw On, I am now a retired spine surgeon. I took my first course in mnemonics after I finished my internship. I was very angry that this is not a federal requirement to be taught in all schools. The time, energy and resources that would be improved boggles my imagination. The ripple effect on ideas, inventions and books goes through the roof. Please do everything you can to make a federal law that these techniques be taught in all schools. Thank you.🙂

Hi. retired medic here. Agreed. I've been saying similar for 40 years. IT gives some muscle, but not fleetfooted enough. They should do a pilot, maybe one med school. Regards from UK.

it all depends how you were taught to learn in childhood. sometimes it is just the brain getting tired of all the connections (hormone problems maybe). i cant remember any lullaby or songs or anything from my parents from earlier. i meet people and forget them within a year ... i learn better if i understand the concept. now i try to learn how to pronounce certain words correctly but the next day i forget which variant was the right one i am not even 40 years old i studied at school 4 languages once. life is like now not a day or years before at the moment. I think the brain needs early habits and good nutrition.....to keep it up....and going....my grandmother knows still most of her stories from childhood ....thats because they had real social life as well....that didnt happen at clubs or online. they had a daily pattern all the time...their villages were social....they knew each other and having big families and meeting regularly where they could exchange their lifes truly helped them a lot. now you go to the council and get benefit...thats it. or all knowledge is in the internet.....

It is interesting to keep mind & body engaged with such a focused and funny manner but does it work for individuals with severe depression,Alzheimer,dementia or any sort of mental illness because these are the people who actually struggles a lot with memory ? If yes then please share those techniques also so that it would help such individuals & in return helps in deteriorating suicidal cases.A reply to it would be highly appreciable.

School methods taught us that you need to study and memorize for a test while it sometimes be better in the opposite. Remember when you make mistakes in a test, you might remember it for the rest of your life. In conclusion it is better to find an test or quiz and just go with it without preparation and make mistakes! I don't know if this will work but lets do "test for study" not study for test.

I use rooms in my house I grew up in. I have my mental image of 5 items in each of the rooms. I associate the word with the objects in the room. I've done up to 50 words before when being told only once slowly to give me time to do the association. I've never had to go past that, but it would be easy. Its neat because you can do it in any order and someone can ask you what item 21 is and you will just know because you know where that object is in the house.

this is the way i learn as a kid and I always get the best scores because I memorise everything. However, this is not long term memory. Another negative side is that I sometimes only remember the bizarre images, and not the context.
