The Nature of Memory

When you hear a number or a name, do you find that it's easy to forget it very quickly if you don't repeat it to yourself over and over and over? If so, you're probably learning that this is not the most efficient price information. This is because repetition is only one of the things which causes your mind to remember a piece of information.

People recall information which is repeated, because the brain considers it to be more relevant. It's that simple. Considering this, it ought to be easy to memorize information quickly if you can just find a quicker way of letting your mind know that information is relevant.

Three Ways to Make Information Relevant

1. Emotional Context

The first way to make information more relevant is by providing it with a richer emotional context. If your mind is a powerful emotional context to associate with a piece of information, it is more likely to remember it. How can you put a piece of information into a richer context?

By simply adding additional sensory stimuli to it: auditory stimuli, visual stimuli or tactile (feeling and motion based) still.

For example, if you simply hear the piece of information, you are only letting the auditory portion of your brain and thus making a weaker impression. But if you take the time to write down the information that you want to remember, and if you look at it and read it out loud, you'll stimulate the visual and tactile parts of your brain as well.

This will make you more likely to remember the information. If you're looking for an example of this, just think about how much quicker you memorize a phone number if you dial it a few times instead of simply listening to it.

TIP: The next time you want to memorize something, sit down and physically write it out a few times. Then practice speaking it aloud a few times, with some emotion in your voice. This will give it a visual, auditory and hands-on (the practice of writing it) context.

2. Supporting Information

Information is more likely to be considered relevant by your brain if it is attached to other supporting information. This is because your mind recognizes the information has being a part of a larger concept and therefore more relevant. For example, it's much easier to remember words if you hear them sung than if you hear them spoke. This is because the melody and rhythm of the song provides the lyrics with supporting information.

You can also remember people's names easier if you also find out things like where they are from or what they do for a living.

TIP: the next time you memorize a piece of information, either put it to music or learn some other supporting information to go with it. For example, the next time you meet someone, ask them where they're from and memorize their name as "Mark from Tampa" instead of just "Mark."

3. Take Ownership of Information

The next time you want to remember a piece of information, sit down and write out a description of why the information is important to you. This is especially effective when you learned something from a book, such as a quote or a concept.

For example, if you come across a quote that you really like, write a paragraph about it or relate it to another quote that you like. This will help you to take ownership of the information by developing your own thought process around it.

TIP: Start keeping a book of important quotes and concepts that you want to remember, and get into the habit of reading a few pages out of it every morning. You'll be surprised at how this will help improve your personal development and brain power.
