Do you forget anything quickly? Do you struggle to remember something easily? Ever wanted to know how to memorize anything fast and easy?
Using my personal four simple rules, I challenge you that after reading this article you will learn the art of memorizing things fast. If you don’t want to learn it, stop reading this now.
We all know that some people are so good at remembering things fast and easily. I mean, they easily remember names, lessons, incidents, and difficult concepts. You may be wondering how these people can memorize something so fast.
Well, remembering or memorizing anything first is an art. It is not a natural gift. If you learn this art or this skill, you can even memorize anything way better than others. Unfortunately, no school or college is teaching us this art of memorizing things fast and easily. After reading this interesting article, you will master the art of memorizing things fast. I call it nemonkology. It is the field of science where we study the art of memorizing things using mnemonics.
What is mnemonic?
Mnemonic is a system that assists us in remembering something fast. Don't worry if you do not find the term pneumonicology or its definition in any book or dictionary. It is because I call it pneumonicology. Now let me quickly teach you how your memory works at its highest level or optimum level.
Four Simple Rules to Memorize Anything Fast and Easy
Consider that you have watched a famous movie. As usual, you either remember every event of the movie or you remember the whole story of the movie. Have you ever wondered why this is happening every time you watch a movie?
The answer is simple. Your memory loves visualizing pictures to store them fast and easily. Your memory loves visualizing pictures to store them fast and easily. If you learn this art of your memory, which we will completely discuss in this article, you can easily memorize anything.
I just noted down this important point about your memory. Now let me discuss my personal four rules for using pneumonics.
The first rule is using names or pictures of celebrities to memorize.
For example, I want to memorize the 4th or the 14th group of the periodic table. Instead of cramming it for hours, I will use the mnemonic of a picture of Salman Khan. Secondly, I form a sentence in which all the elements are present.
For instance, I say,
"Can Salman Go South Punjab Fast?"
C stands for carbon.
S stands for Silicon.
G stands for Germanium.
S stands for SN, which is the tin's symbol.
P stands for PB, which is the symbol of the lid.
F stands for Florvium.
Now my memory has stored the picture of Salman Khan in the 14th or fourth group of the periodic table. Whenever I have to recall the elements of the 14th group of the periodic table in any exam, I will just think of Salman Khan. It will give me some insight into "Can Salman Go South Punjab Fast?"
So, this is how I remember the 14th group of the periodic table. Therefore, using the pictures of celebrities, we can easily remember anything.
The second rule is using attributes, for example
I want to learn the formula of work done and the formula of the moment in physics.
Now I say,
Men for duty and Women for smiles.
M= F, D, and W = F, S.
So, using the attributes of something, we can easily learn and memorize anything fast.
The third rule is to use pictures of your family members
I want to learn the list of positive prefixes in physics. Here I think about the picture of my dad.
"Dad Has Kept My Gray Truck."
D stands for Deca,
H stands for Hecto,
K stands for Kilo,
M stands for Mega,
G stands for Giga,
"T stands for Tera.
Thus, using the picture of our family members, we can easily attach any concept to it.
The last and fourth rule is using pictures of animals or heavenly bodies
For example, I want to learn about all the salts in chemistry. We know that salts have two parts. metal part and a negative ion part. To remember the list of salts, I consider the picture of a cat.
I say, "Cute Cat, So Nice."
C stands for carbonates, like calcium carbonate.
C stands for chlorides, like sodium chloride.
S stands for sulfate, like magnesium sulfate.
N stands for nitrates, like Sodium Nitrate.
Thus, using this trick, we can learn the list of all the important salts in chemistry. There may be some students who would take more than one hour to memorize this list of all salts. But using this trick and this mnemonic, we can learn it in less than a minute.
So, this is the complete art of memorizing anything fast and easily. I hope that you have learned the art of memorizing things fast and easily.
