Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video The story method, part of Improving Your Memory.
- The human mind is wired to remember stories.…In fact, before many old ancient books were written,…they were shared as oral traditions…or stories through the generations.…When you're reading a non-fiction,…informational piece of material,…you'll sometimes notice that authors…will present you with a story to illustrate a point.…They could've just told you the moral of the story…but instead they provided you that information…in a form of a story.…Why is that?…It's because authors know that their readers…are more likely to remember information…if it's presented in a story like fashion.…
If you need to remember a specific set of details,…you may want to try memorizing it in the form of a story.…Try starting off in the classic way of saying…"Once upon a time..."…and then add any information you need…to remember within that story.…Don't forget to make it exaggerated…as we know that exaggeration helps us to remember things.…You may recall from an earlier lesson,…that we created a story…from a 14-letter combination of letters.…
