Hi guys, I am back
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 )
