Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video Memorizing ten items, part of Improving Your Memory.
- In this video we're going to use…the numeric peg system…to memorize a ten-item list.…Before we proceed, you need to make sure…that you've memorized the picture…that's associated with each number.…You should know that one is a pencil,…two is a swan,…three is McDonald's,…four is a chair…and five is a hook.…Six is a cherry,…seven is a lightning bolt,…eight is a racetrack,…nine is a balloon…and 10 is a plate or bowl and silverware.…So here is the list you need to memorize.…
Here's how this is going to work.…We start with the number one…which you remember is a pencil.…Now the item we have to memorize…in this position is bread.…So what we need to do here…is come up with a visual…that includes pencil and bread.…Why pencil, because the number one…is associated to a pencil.…Now it's very important that the visual you create…is something exaggerated.…If you'll recall from our previous lessons,…exaggeration helps you remember things well.…So you need to exaggerate all of the visuals we create.…You would create these visuals on your own…
