I’m a student living in Brisbane, Australia. I’ve been vaguely aware of memory techniques for a while now. Some of my mates have taken to memorising the digits of pi to certain lengths and competing in competitions. Spaced repetition is the only memorisation technique I am really familiar with, as I used Duolingo’s Tinycards app to memorise the flags of all the sovereign nations, as well as the two Japanese syllabaries and the grade one kanji. In my experience I am fairly good at recalling textual things e.g. English spellings and Japanese characters.
The reason for my joining is that it recently occurred to me that I could memorise two short philosophy books in my possession, namely the Art of War and the Tao Te Ching, to get the most out of them. Some quick research into memorising these books lead me to this forum.
