There has been a bit of discussion lately. Here, here and here, as a result of this article(use google translate if you need to). The subject is using people as loci generators, putting 20 or more loci on a person, and placing those people in memory palaces to exponentially increase the amount of loci you have. I want to know what your thoughts on this are, and if anyone tried this, please contribute.
I can’t visualize people that well, especially not the features mentioned in those posts, such as ankles, knees, etc. But I think if I tried to view them from around a meter away, focusing on the big picture, as in, seeing the whole person, while at the same time something is happening to specific body parts, that might work. As in, even when I focus on placing something on their foot, I still see the rest of their body in my peripheral vision.
And here is what I think would be the points of focus: Toes, ankle, shin, knee, groin, stomach, pectoral, hand, lower arm, upper arm, shoulder, neck, chin/teeth, eyes, hair. Thats 15, you could always try doubling it by dividing the body into left and right sides. Or even viewing the body from the back, but for me, the distinguishing feature inbetween people is usually the face.
