A good mem­o­ry makes a per­son eru­dite and inter­est­ing, it helps to become a good spe­cial­ist. Some­one is giv­en a gift in the form of a good mem­o­ry from child­hood, while some­one has to con­stant­ly train it. How infor­ma­tion is bet­ter remem­bered, what is nec­es­sary for the devel­op­ment of mem­o­ry are ques­tions that are being asked more and more often in the mod­ern infor­ma­tive world.

Types of memory

Mem­o­ry is aimed at remem­ber­ing var­i­ous infor­ma­tion. Some­times a huge amount of unnec­es­sary infor­ma­tion is eas­i­ly remem­bered, and the nec­es­sary knowl­edge, even in the amount of a small poem, evap­o­rates from the head in a moment.

Mem­o­ry is clas­si­fied accord­ing to sev­er­al cri­te­ria:

  • Infor­ma­tion reten­tion time. Dis­tin­guish between work­ing, short-term and long-term mem­o­ry.
  • Fea­tures of brain activ­i­ty. Here, motor, fig­u­ra­tive, ver­bal-log­i­cal and emo­tion­al vari­eties are dis­tin­guished.
  • The pur­pose of the activ­i­ty high­lights the arbi­trary and invol­un­tary stor­age of infor­ma­tion.

When you need to remem­ber some­thing, sev­er­al types of infor­ma­tion stor­age in the brain are con­nect­ed at once.

Better Memorization Ways

Better Memorization Ways

Each per­son is indi­vid­ual, so there is no uni­ver­sal way to remem­ber. You need to find a way that will help you remem­ber the infor­ma­tion you need.

  • Do not mem­o­rize the text. Cram­ming will not help you learn the mate­r­i­al, and it will fly out of your head at the most inop­por­tune moment. First you need to under­stand the infor­ma­tion, then mem­o­riza­tion will be eas­i­er and remain for a longer peri­od.
  • Visu­al­ize what you want to remem­ber. Espe­cial­ly if you have a devel­oped visu­al-fig­u­ra­tive mem­o­ry. Some­times a vivid exam­ple allows you to remem­ber what you need for a life­time.
  • High­light the main ideas. When you want to remem­ber only the essence, there is no need to delve into the descrip­tion.
  • Retelling is a great way to learn the mate­r­i­al. Even if you are in an emp­ty room, retell an imag­i­nary inter­locu­tor. So you will quick­ly under­stand where else you need to learn.
  • Write what you remem­ber. If the amount of infor­ma­tion is too large, write a plan and tell it out loud, peep­ing at the cheat sheet. When the infor­ma­tion is need­ed, you will remem­ber the plan and the nec­es­sary knowl­edge will pop up in your head from the cor­ners of mem­o­ry.
  • Spaced rep­e­ti­tion is nec­es­sary. It is not enough to mem­o­rize, it is nec­es­sary to repeat sev­er­al times. It is rec­om­mend­ed to repro­duce infor­ma­tion imme­di­ate­ly after mem­o­riza­tion, then after 15 min­utes, then after a day and after a cou­ple of weeks.
  • Don’t neglect rest. The brain gets tired, so it needs breaks. No need to try to remem­ber a large amount of infor­ma­tion in a short peri­od of time.
  • Find the right time to remem­ber. In the morn­ing or evening? This is indi­vid­ual. Rely on your bio­rhythms. The best time to mem­o­rize is from 7 to 10 am and from 8 to 11 pm. You can remem­ber in the morn­ing and repeat in the evening.
  • Divide infor­ma­tion into seman­tic blocks and mem­o­rize one at a time. This method is suit­able for large infor­ma­tive vol­umes.
  • Use asso­ci­a­tions. Link the mate­r­i­al to the knowl­edge you already have.
  • Rhyme if you can. The school exam­ple “the bisec­tor is a rat that runs around the cor­ners and divides the cor­ner in half” clear­ly shows the effec­tive­ness of this method. Even an avid los­er could not for­get about this geo­met­ric com­po­nent.
  • Throw away the neg­a­tiv­i­ty and trust that you will be able to remem­ber.

So that mem­o­riza­tion does not turn into tor­ture, train your mem­o­ry. Mind games, learn­ing new skills, routes will not only diver­si­fy your life, but also make your mem­o­ry bet­ter.
