Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (1)Big coding isn't the hottest concept memory science science has come up with, is it?

No, but it's certainly great when set in real life.

If you use this memory technique well, you can memorize a dozen names (or more) at any meeting or party.

Not to mention several dozen details about:

  • Profession
  • hobbies
  • relationship status
  • Locations
  • educational and professional background
  • ... and a lot more!

think you canremember so muchabovebeethe people you meet... within seconds of hearing the details.

Wouldn't that be a great skill?

(If you don't agree, I'd love to know why not in the comments section below!)

The best part (if you have those skills)?

You have everything perfectly organized and accessible in your mind. These details will literally be goneshort-term memoryinto long-term memory within seconds.

Don't be afraid of memory science!

Now I've realized that many people hear the scientific terms about how memory techniques work and immediately shut down.

If that's you, here's the plain truth:

you are missing onegreat chance to improve your memoryby understanding more about how and why it works.

And although a term like “deep coding”Soundscomplicated, it is actually:

  • Easier than you might think
  • Something you already do...
  • Inalwayshelpful for practice so you can get better over time

To help you, I have developed three coding exercises to improve memory.

But first, your best bet is to understand exactly what deep coding is.

Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (2)

Effective deep coding is like having a living, multi-interconnected ecosystem of connections in your head

What is "Extensive Encryption"?

The definition of deep encryption is elementary! Yes indeed!

And it's not so much a thing as onetingYou can achieve this by using memory techniques.

This simple mental task begins with associating information you want to remember with existing knowledge.

For example:

There's a guy named Hunter from the Burger Project (in Brisbane) that I get grass-fed beef burgers (not a bun).

(Video) Magnetic Memory Method Memory Improvement Kit Tutorial Video

Iremembered his namealmost automatically because I linked the information, Jäger's name, to information I already knowaboveHunter.

And I assembled multiple layers of that information within seconds of hearing his name. I put him together with a cloaked man with a gun, not an ordinary one. Instead I used my favorite fighter from the Looney Tunes, Elmer Fudd.

Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (3)

Elmer Fudd with the old Nintendo gun for Duck Hunt worked well as my magnetic image for Hunter.

At the same time, I handed Hunter the old plastic pistol from the Nintendo game Duck Hunt. (Not in reality, but in my imagination.)

By taking his name and associating it with Elmer Fuddand thengoes one step further and addsHunting grafts, I waswell thought outmy mental image. Not only did I think about how it all looked, but also:

  • Heard the sound of a duck gun and the voice of Elmer Fudd
  • I felt the Nintendo gun in my hand
  • Imagine the smell of gun smoke
  • I thought of the taste of roast duck

In any case, I made the picture weird, larger than life, and filled it with lively action. Hunter literally shot Elmer Fudd before I started eating him like he was a duck.

Taken together, these multi-layered elaborations made the Hunter name even more memorable. This process only took a few seconds and since then I have never forgotten his name.

What else can this style of mnemonic design be used for?

No, you might think that the names sound all well and good. But here's the thing:

Deep encryption can be appliedatKnowledge.

If you can use this knowledge, create associations, and manipulate size, color, speed, duration, distance, mood, emotion, and space, you can remember anything.

When can deep coding be used?


But for now, just focus on the keywords related to the information you want to add to your knowledge base.

From there you can move on to more challenging memory tasks, e.gto memorize the scriptures.

Otherwise, you'll create more work before you have the skills. Why bridle the horse from behind?

The most important tools for deep encryption

Deep coding is bothsemanticInekkoisk.

Semantic coding is about the structure and often the meaning of information.

For example, if you learned the letters of the alphabet, you probably didn't start with the letter Q.

Instead, you learned your A, B, C's through songs in alphabetical order (a structure).

You focused on each letter individually while learning what sound each letter makes.

Later you learned how to recognize them when they are written and how to write them yourself.

The guiding role of mental "free" association

To give another example, when I say the word "red," you can picture a stop sign, a fire engine, or a big, juicy apple. They associate red with its meaning and with examples of this color in the world. This is an element of deep encryption.

But that is not all…

Extensive coding can also be echoic or sound-related.

This can be the literal interpretation or imitation of sounds, such as onomatopoeia:

A frog croaks, bees hum, cats meow and horses whinny.

(Video) Magnetic Memory Method Masterclass Upgrades

These sounds are familiar and ingrained. So when we hear a "woof," we immediately see a dog.

All of these connections are already present in your brain. This makes them so easy to use in addition to the classic memory techniques.

Does that sound like “free” creativity?

It is. The only price is to be human.

What else can you explain? ...

You don't have to stop expanding your mental picture. You can also…

Run the organization yourself.


Memory palaces are the tool of most mnemonists. They are essentially the palette on which we "paint" our deep coding.

Other tools are e.gAlphabetic photo frame of pegword method, as well as 00-99PAO-Listen.

These powerful organizational tools can be multiplied by combining them. See them aseffect independent of effect.

I will help you here:

Determine your condition.

Think about the state you are in. What are you doing? Are you relaxed, present and aware or just letting your day flow? Take advantage of relaxation andmeditation techniques,even breathing exercises to deepen your personal condition.

In the beginning, for example, you might want to pay attention to noise. It can distract you if youtry to remember. Later, as memory expert John Graham explains, you should practice memory palacesbothnoisy and quiet environments for mental simulation.

Deepen your memory consolidation.

It is no secretsleepis very important for memory consolidation, but it is not so well known that it is age dependent, meaning that memory expansion decreases with age.

It therefore goes without saying that we should try to get every benefit out of our memory by practicing good sleep habits and taking care of our general health.

This includes good nutrition, socializing (face-to-face contact with others) and a consistent daily routine, including a morning ritual to start the day in the best possible way.

So how do we put all of these ideas into practice so that our memory improvement efforts flow? With three simple exercises (learn more here).Advanced Memory Palace Training Exercises):

Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (5)

#1: The abstract concept deepening exercise

The purpose of this exercise is to practice deep coding of concepts.

First, choose a list of non-visual concepts or words.

Nothing special!

Serious. There is no need to consult a philosophy dictionary (but you can if you wish).

Just start with terms you already know. These are words that contain basic concepts and ideas, such as:

  • justice
  • Truth
  • Business

Try to make a list of 10 such concept wordsalready knownto you.

(Video) How To Remember Things: 21 Techniques For Memory Improvement

If 10 is too much, you can always reduce. Challenge yourself in the right way and avoid cramming so many concepts that you only get frustrated.

After making your list, use a memory palace with an appropriate number of magnetic stations and make associations that will help you remember the words on your list.

Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (6)

For example, if you're a metalhead, Metallica…And justice for allThat's probably what comes to mind when you hear the term justice.

In this case you can use James Hetfield as the representative of justice. Or maybe an icon of justice stole his guitar and wants it back.

Are you more of a cartoon fan?

No problem! Think of Superman and his infamous slogan, "Truth, Justice and the American Way."

Encrypt your entire list and make associations with itYour memory palace, which deepens those associations - perhaps Superman spills tea on James Hetfield's guitar, prompting Hetfield to seek justice. Bringing these two together...

You areTrain, train!It's a very powerful way to boost your memory.

Finally, test the performance of your abstract elaborations. Use Recall Rehearsal when writing your list in your reminder journal.

Add more concept words for more practice. Now might be the time to step out of the philosophy dictionary!

Magnetic Memory Method - Memory improvement made easy with Anthony Metivier (7)

#2: The Naming Exercise

Then make a list of names.

What names? What about those related to your area of ​​interest?

Are you an aspiring scientist? Make a list of pioneers in your field.

If you are an aspiring artist, who are your influences?

Are you an experienced home cook? Who are some of your favorite professional chefs?

To give another example, the science of memory is obviously close to my heart, both personally and professionally. Two innovators in this field are Fergus Craik and Robert Lockheart.

I remember Fergus Craik by remembering my aunt's mother who used to live in Fergus, Ontario.

Craik sounds like the octopus, a mythological sea creature. Maybe my aunt's mother is fighting an octopus.

I remember that Robert Lockheart's aunt's brother's name was Robert.

While her mother is fighting the Kraken, Robert's heart is ripped out by the Loch Ness Monster.

Quite a picture, isn't it?

Only when it has all the magnetic states is it not like that.

I have to add sound, feel and all that is taught in itMaster class on the magnetic memory methodto ensure that the images actually appear in my memory palaces.

Always try to push the boundaries with your list of names. The more "out there" is, the more poignant it will be in your head.

Code your list the same way you did concepts, use names, practice recall exercises, and test yourself.

#3: The vocabulary deepening exercise

For this exercise, choose vocabulary in your native language.

(Or, to make it more sophisticated, choose words from a foreign language. Here15 reasons why learning a language is good for your brain.)

Make associations with this vocabulary in Memory Palaces,deepening of the associations, and test yourself.

If you feel like you're doing "too much" or going "too far," that's spot on.

Concentrate on elaborating the information and working out the elaborations. Then you canFocus on improving memory performance.

Go ahead and make sure you don't settle for just the good in your practice. Good enough doesn't hone your skills when it counts. You need to be challenged.

Your next steps in the endless memory adventure...

It's very easy.

Go past the drills and into the pantry.

And as many uses as possible.

For example use this onememory exercisesin yourdaily learning practiceacross multiple disciplines. The more connections you make during your daily learning journey, the faster and more intuitively you'll think about elaborations.

Finally,challenge yourself

Try adding numbers to names. learnmain methodvonDominican systemin order to make this possible.

Combine these toopowerful brain exercises. Use vocabulary in combination with names and concepts.

Continuously develop your practice by adding challenges. Slow down when frustration sets in, then add more challengesForYou are ready to keep growing.

So the next time you're at an event and meeting new people, it won't be difficult to find the perfect magnetic image for each person you meet.
