Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video Pictures, part of Improving Your Memory.
- Have you ever heard the phrase,…"A picture is worth a thousand words?"…In this video we'll introduce the power of pictures,…and how they affect your memory.…By the end of this video we'll try to…double your short-term memory capacity.…Instead of being limited to seven things,…Miller's Magic Number,…you'll remember up to 14.…So let's discuss why visual information like…pictures are so easy to remember.…Have you ever forgotten someone's name?…We all have.…But what if you ran into that person…later in the week or later in the month,…you'd probably remember their face right?…You might forget their name,…but you easily remember their face.…
Why is that?…It's because the human brain remembers…visual information much better…than abstract information.…A face is very visual.…You can picture it in your mind,…which makes it easy to remember.…A first name is more abstract…and harder to remember.…Unless we include some sort…of repetition or association with it.…Now this is very important to realize that you're…very good at remembering visual information,…
