Memorize & Link Non-Related Objects

The reason why phone numbers are separated by groups is to make it
easy for a person to remember them. This technique actually has a
role in keeping one's memory active and utilized. The thing is; we
tend to forget or find it difficult to mentally retain information
if we don't see any partition in between.

The next time you see a phone number or set of important numbers,
try to memorize them first without separating the numbers. After
doing so, try now by "chunking" the numbers. When chunking down
numbers, you simply group the first three digits together by
separating them with a hyphen in your mental picture. Can you see
now the difference in chunking numbers compared to not chunking them?

It doesn't have to be used with numbers alone. You can try it with
objects. Grocery items perhaps are great for this. What you do is
you group the items together according to their classification.
Group dairy products together, frozen food under one list and so on...

An effective way of memorizing long lists such as grocery items can
be done by using the link method. How to use this is very simple
and yet effective. Just keep in mind that whatever it is that you
need to memorize are linked together within a scenario that you
create.

Consider these items for example:
pears, carton of fresh milk, ham, toothpaste, detergent powder,
tissue paper

First, imagine a group of pears picking on a carton of fresh milk.
The fresh milk got so upset and ran away, spilling milk tears all
over the aisle. The ham heard the upset milk and went after it and
slips on the milk tears spilled on the floor. The ham then slides
directly to the toothpaste stand and smashes several toothpaste
tubes. An upset box of detergent powder comes running, cleaning up
the mess the ham had caused with its bubbly detergent powder. Not
convinced of its cleaning job, the detergent powder tossed the ham
to the tissue paper section to dry.

You can clearly tell that the scenario above didn't require an
orderly procedure. In fact, it is quite ludicrous.
