Hi there, i’m kinda new to memory techniques, when I first learnt how to memorize a deck of cards I used 1 card image system and I placed 2 images per loci. I quickly changed over PAO because I read It was faster but the results were not that good (like 8 minutes per deck which is not that bad for a newbie anyway) . So I returned back to 1 card/ image system (approx 1 week ago) and started getting 5 minutes time. During this week I practiced a lot and yesterday I got a PB of 90.74s for a perfect deck (avg 100s). It felt really great but then I talked with a champion that told me to switch back to pao as soon as possible. Idk what to do because I know that sooner or later I will need to change to a more advanved technique to keep lowering times and It will be harder to make this change in the future because my brain will be super familiar with my actual method if I keep using it. On the other hand , I believe I could get good times also using this method, but I’m not sure… Are there any guys that use this beginner method for speed cards but also for like 1 hour deck of cards?
What do you think I should do? Change method later? My goal is (sooner or later) to compete
