I’m really interested in your training, and I think that you’re using “link method” together with “method of loci”. Because you create a story that is taking place along some known location, but the STORY is important…
I don’t do such thing. I memorize separated pictures, not linked pictures. I cannot say it doesn’t work, but it’s quite different. I don’t even care whether my journey is rotating from left to the right or right to the left, because those object don’t interact with each other. And I don’t “walk” through the journey, I just skip to the next location. And I also saw your video where you memorized a deck of cards and then the rest was a movie of your images, (really fascinating, by the way!), so this isn’t what’s in my mind at all! My objects interact with a location some times.
For example, one of my journeys:
- Desk; computer monitor; bed …
And to memorize 7212 4797 9291, I would picture:
- Coin (72) jumping above some tin (12) placed on my desk;
- (next picture, no interaction) A rock (47) as it is hitting a book (97) that falls on a computer monitor (interaction with a location)
- A bone (like a skeleton) (92) which is hitting my bed with a baseball bat (91) (another interaction with location)
What do you think about this? I know that everybody is different, but I just wanna know if you had used something similar before but realized that it wasn’t the best approach.
