Number of Fails

Hi guys, I am back :smiley:
Been experimenting with shape system, and ben system, which I am publishing right now. The 1352 shape system is already made public in https://artofmemory.com/app/ (it is paid membership unfortunately). The 1352 ben system will be on this page. Be warn some words (and pictures) are highly aggressive and can be R-rated (sexual ^.^).

Note: I got the motivation from



One more time an appraisal to @RubiksKid for sharing his full Ben system excel sheet, which I have modified with some of my own.

In case you are wondering why I did not finish a full Ben system, well, see I was also in the process of making a 1000 major system whilest I made the other systems, and I have to say, major system gives the consistency in pronunciation which I tend to prefer.

I just realise I cant post excel documents here, RIP

Next let me congratulate myself for breaking my ‘competing plateau result’ during a competing mode in https://memoryleague.com/?_ga=2.177046565.1848914748.1579165682-2052691583.1579165682#!/home

My new strategy?
*Use 1 group only ( dont use 2 groups+). This is for concentration and eliminate eyeball distractions such as moving it to see the image on the side.
*2 image per loci.
*Reuse palaces. I have 10 palace worth 13 loci each just for image game. Reusing palace has the advantage of being able to go through them faster and faster. Generally their speed will be ‘maxed out’ after the 20-30th attempt.
*remember the last 4 image in story mode

*Take breaks, there was a time where I was frustrated for being unable to break a certain mark, and I believe that really affected my motivation. Taking rest allows you to stay fresh and open minded (so 3 games of image a day is probably already enough)

*Lastly which took me 8 month to realise-always always bring the first image starting in each loci to the second image, DO NOT bring the second image to interact with the first image. So say the 2 image is squirrel and chip (above example), make the squirrel’s head move to the chip, do not see chip moving TO the squirrel, not only does it break rythms, slows you down, but also confuse memory during recall as to which of the 2 images showed up first in each loci.

My goal is to sub-10s during competing in a few month. Today’s result was SUPER on the speed but my memory was all jumbled up lols.

But today’s greatest achievment was in words, I was able to see 42 out of 44 image I created during memorisation, with 4 words which I said out aloud (I struggle with 6 atm but I usually repeat 4 words and visually see the last 2 words). This is something I struggle hugely before, worrying and regretting the number of my live spend on video games and how it might have burnt my brain so I have freaken defects making me unable to see as much image within my loci as an average person. Again, a break really helps.

Finally, I love major system, and this time I will continue it all the way to the finish line (know it like a boss :slight_smile: )

Congratulations! You have made a huge progress. You are so keen and determined. Way to go.

How do you mean the 1352 shape system made public?
I am a paid member to the app, but I don’t see it published?

@Erol if you go to system and scroll down and click on ‘’‘Search Public Systems’’ and scroll to the second last system (1352 Shape System) that would be it. Although it is the only 1352 system I committed to memory, but it is just too slow and hard to ‘‘see’’ during memorization for me. Perhaps it is the fact that people where having so much strong success with pronunciation system that I give it up, but I will use those images within loci as loci themselves just for fun anyways.

Though I have to say, it is wayyyy faster to learn a pronunciation system then a shape system for me as the sound clues the legit word after a few practice. I might revisit my shape system in the future but atm I am falling in love with major :slight_smile:

All images are from google, with most from pinterest.com, half nude pics (no female ofc) and one drawing of avocado pic is involved. Use at your own risk :smiley:

learnt 800/1100 of my major system so far.
made 1000/1100 of it.
guess the lucky last
600-699
j, ch, sh, du, dj, soft g, and alike sounds are freaken impossible…impossibleeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I think I will end up really lazy again and just use hard g even hard c…

anyways, at the moment, my plan is to use 00-99 as 600-699 (I have 000-099 so no biggie here)
let me rank the 4 hundred hardest ones to make in order from hardest to easiest from my experience:
600-699
800-899
400-499
500-599

numzi, rememberg, the two topic on “1000” in this forum, mnemonic database, and speedupmemory really helped me finish my 4th 1000+ system faster than ever before! less than 20 days. And it is soooo much better than any other I have tried. Wish I had started with 3 digit major at first, see I wanted to be the best so tried different roads, but lmao best to follow the same road before making a new path in this case XD. OMG cant imagine how far I will be by now had I done that…

(T oT)owwwww…

all website I used, except numzi is listed on the first page here:
and yes when I am happy with it, it will be shared in respect for those who too shared they system :slight_smile:
