Just thought we could have a thread about our achievements so far with mnemonics. It doesn’t have to be anything spectacular - just whatever you’ve achieved, whether it’s deck memorization, academic, personal pursuits etc.
This is what I’ve done so far (might update this thread as I achieve more):
I’ve memorized four poems - Infant Joy by William Blake, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening By Robert Frost, The Eagle by Alfred Lord Tennyson and The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. I learnt all of these using the link - since the majority are short and have strong rhythmic structures.
I learnt eleven pages of information on the key themes etc. of Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening. I used loci for this.
I learnt all the key points of a 115 page book on essay-writing. Seven pages of notes learnt mostly by loci.
Information on the most influential artists of the 15th-20th century including their most famous works. I learnt these by using their most famous paintings as the loci.
Around 50 words/spellings/definitions. Learnt these by placing the words in places I associate with the word or its concept.
A little information on religion, roman numerals, lists, greek gods and goddesses etc.
Countless trivia, song titles, book titles, quotations and names.
I didn’t think I’d learnt very much - but when listing it all, it’s actually quite a lot! What I’m still trying to work on is simplifying my images - I tend to over-complicate the visual at times. I could do with improving my speed, as well.
