Wanted some feedback regarding a system I’m trying out for memorizing long text. The system builds on the ideas and pieces of others. Essentially it is a modified loci system. I use an alphabetized filing cabinet of people I know and associate the image with a picture that captures the overall paragraph or subject matter. Next, I associate sub images of relavent key points to the full body of the alphabetized representative (similar to basic peg systems or as Ron White calls, a skeleton file). The issues I am having are around how many images and by what system is best to peg sub images (for example, one could use a PAO system with the body part representing an O); I read somewhere that no more than two objects should be associated…but sometimes three (if it includes an action) may be more memorable.
Anyhoo, feel free to give it a crack and if anyone has some feedback regarding better ways to peg info and in what sequence, that would be tops…
