My first post here. Sincere apologies if this is in the wrong category or if this topic has been discussed before.
I am really struggling with memorizing a deck of cards or a long list of numbers. I am able to convert the cards/numbers to my PAO and place them in my memory palace. All good. The problem arises when I try to recollect the person present at each point. Since the actions and objects are bizarre, they are easy to recollect, but how do I remember if it was Tom Cruise or Bill Gates that was juggling ponies. It’s especially frustrating that by the end, I can’t even remember the first person. Most of them time, I end up going - “damn it, who was it that was juggling ponies?”
Please help. I am really struggling.
