Hey there, ive gotten pretty good at getting good with new palaces fast, so thought id share my approach if this is something youre struggling with.
Run through your palaces a few times.
Count the loci while youre memorizing, you want to ensure your numbers are correct for the discipline or just general knowledge if thats your purpose.
-First trial, double the timer and see all images twice.
For example, in words ill set the timer for 2 minutes(if you havent reached level 10, go longer), see each image twice.
- 2nd trial, go 1.5x the time limit. In words, I go 90 seconds, but judge this based on your abilities, you may need longer or perhaps can get away with going faster.
-3rd trial go through like normal, try to complete before the 60 seconds is up if youre level 10, if lower level you may need a bit longer. Accept the fact that you will probably not be accurate, i usually get around 30-35 in Words for example.
4th trial, here I’ll be ready for a normal run. I typically finish just under a normal performance for myself.
Please note that even if you are not a memory athlete, you can still use a similar method. Practice memorizing words (you can use IAM website if you dont have a subscription), try memorizing the list of words equal to the amount of loci in your palace. You may need to go through it a few times, but if you can visualize words in your palace you can visualize learning concepts in your palace.
