How To Memorize Quickly— Never Struggle Again!

IMPORTANT: This IS an interactive article, it WILL teach you how to memorize quickly. Please leave in the comments below how this went for you :)

First thing, first. We need to learn how the memorization process works and that is by association. And all information in your head is brought up into consciousness though a stimulus and response process (usually a question.) So what does this mean? It simply means when retrieving information from your head it is because 1.) someone asks you a question or 2.) You see something or hear something and that triggers familiar information to come out. It is also important to note that your mind thinks in pictures (either consciously or unconsciously.)

By the way, there is a faster way and more effective way to take control of the memory process than traditional manners, which we will learn now!

Digging Deeper

Now it is time to dig deeper and realize THAT WE CAN control the memorization process. It is as simple as putting something into a picture and associating it with something familiar in our minds! Let's do a simple exercise to prove the power of association.

Below there is a list of closely related items. We can memorize this list quickly because it is all associated with each other. Please preview the list and notice how it triggers mental images, then read below for instructions.

Glass, toothbrush, toothpaste, teeth, gums, floss (be patient, we will get to REAL memorization soon!)

To memorize this we will play a mental movie.

Picture a glass with a toothbrush in it, now imagine the toothbrush with toothpaste on it, notice how you bring that up to your teeth and gums, afterwards flossing. Now recall the list of items playing that movie back in your head. It's so simple isn't it?

We can do the same thing with REAL information once we know this! How about we memorize the first three amendments of the US constitution?

Where The Magic Happens

Please note my associations for pictures may be different from yours, please choose your own unique images unless the ones I state resonate with you. Let us start! First by gathering out images then by making them into a movie.

1. Freedom of speech, for me this is a microphone.

2. The right to bear arms AKA. The right to carry a weapon. For me this is a bears arm.

3. No need to house soldiers. The government can not force an american citizen to house a soldier, before then I suppose if a soldier wanted to stay in your house, you had to let him. For me this is a cottage.

Now that we have our pictures it is movie time! It's simple, a bears arm sticking out of a cottage door, holding a microphone! Now I can recall, freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, and no need to give soldiers housing without your consent.

Conclusion

Using this technique you will be able to memorize your studies at a very rapid pace, there are certainly more advanced systems out there even ones that allow you to memorize entire books. But this will get you well on your way to learning how to memorize quickly.

To be able to access this information without a question, or having something stimulate the response, the memory palace is a good technique to learn as well.

Please let us know how this worked for you in the comment section below! :)

Very nice article Brandon! I like this idea to make a type of movie in your mind to remember certain things. This will certainly help me out in remembering things. Thank you and hope to read more from you!

Very Cool! I dibbled and dabbled with memorization techniques and you are spot on with using a 'movie' with certain pictures to help! Thanks for the great article, Brandon. Oh and I do like your writing style. Hope to see more from you!

I'm curious as to how this became your interest. Is there a simple answer or is an article in order?! ;-)

A article would work better but long story short: I was struggling in school, found an awesome memory course, never completed it came back to it a couple years later and use it for self improvement purposes now. It's a fascinating subject because it goes so much deeper than memory and I can write 100's of unique articles easy, that's how much I love this :)

Yes, I can see the benefit of retaining information. I figure if I can regurgitate what I've learnt (or even read) then I have an understanding of the material. I have done lots of training over the years and often refer to my manuals now when I'm trying to remember the nuances of something. How wonderful to be able to benefit so much from your interest. I wonder if people who are visually dominant are simply better at this technique? I can imagine that others who are highly auditory may benefit from using memories triggers such as rhyming. Perhaps this is all part of the same thing. You have got me thinking! lol. Perhaps I should be running off to write an article!
