Memorizing Your Memory: Tips on Retention

Ever sit down to review the four chapters your assigned, or open that book you just spent over a $100 on and notice the chapters are fifteen pages long with every sentence containing four-syllable words? It's the day before your exam or the night before your final and you have a 3,000 word Paper due with a 10-slide PowerPoint Presentation as well. If you could only memorize everything you read and recall it at your discretion. Well, the techniques I can teach in this article just may unlock your potential in using a few natural occurrences for memorizing your memory!

Sing it & Bring It!!

One of the techniques might cause a distraction to some people, but using music as a tool in unlocking your memory when the deadline is pressing, or acing the test is critical; doesn't mean you have to sing out "I Like Big Butts, and I cannot Lie," but if you have an Ipod, MP3, or music on your phone; then you have a virtual photographic memory that's ready to be accessed!

Ever hear that song from years ago and tell everyone about how big your hair was when hearing that song the last time? Maybe better not to tell everyone, but I bet you even remember the acid wash jeans you had on as well. Some things are better kept to yourself, but on the other hand; discussing the details when speaking is permitted does prove beneficial because the other person may blurt out their parachute pants experience first, leaving you room for admitting to that feathered haircut!

So, from just one song, there's multiple details you can recall when last hearing it. I'm not suggesting you have to sing aloud to bring out the memories, but when you sit down for study sessions to read your volumes of text; it may prove beneficial to have your favorite music playing in the background; not blaring of course, but something that is even conducive to creating an atmosphere. The choice of music is important as well. Symphonic-type music actually promotes learning because of its mathematical and rhythmic genius.

I came up with Memorizing Your Memory as a means to create an atmosphere for when you're in serious study mode; reading one four-syllable word after another, with as many distractions eliminated as possible. If it can be just you and some low-volume music; the other study techniques I can help you with will fall into place. You'll find that "Walk This Way" has more than just a cool video, but can be the key unlocking those four chapters of text you read the night before!

This is soo true, music is also my key to writing awesome papers, even the day they are due. Programming a great Pandora station is also very helpful :)

So true, and the main thing I wanted to convey is how we all have automatic photographic memory - it's just the process of remembering the memories - lol!! Like you said, RAM is killing it, so since computers do most of our thinking - they should be allowed in tests, huh!?! Calculators are..

In the old oral traditions singing was very much part of story telling and communicating. This is a valid technique. RAM is killing all our memories.
