Join Paul Nowak for an in-depth discussion in this video Numeric peg system: Memorizing a 10-item list, part of Study Skills Fundamentals.
- In this video, we're going to use the numeric peg…system to memorize a 10 item list in order.…Before we proceed, you need to make sure…that you've memorized the picture that each number…is pegged to.…You should already know that one is a pencil,…two is a swan, three is McDonald's,…four is a chair, five is a hook,…six is a cherry, seven is a lightning bolt,…eight is a race track,…nine is a balloon, and 10 is a plate or bowl…and silverware.…So here's the list you need to memorize.…
Here's how this is going to work.…We start with the number one,…which we 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 somewhat exaggerated.…If you'll recall from our earlier lessons,…exaggeration helps you remember things very well.…So you need to exaggerate all of the visuals we create.…
Note that I'm not going to show any humorous…
