SUBSTITUTION EXERCISE

To develop substitution as a memory skill see if you can use it to remember the general principles for Memory Improvement mentioned earlier in this book (interest, selection, attention, understanding, intuition, confidence, ego, association, background, organization and practice.) Each principle is an abstract word and/or concept. Unless you developed a substitution mnemonic device you would probably try to remember these principles using a rote memory system. Rote systems are probably those you used throughout your early education since it is popular in most school systems.

By applying rote memory techniques, it would take most people fifteen to thirty minutes to remember the names of the eleven principles. However, by using a substitution mnemonic device, this time can be cut in half. Each general principle is listed below with space next to it for you to either draw a picture of an object (or person), or write the word of the object. The first principal has been completed for you to better demonstrate how substitution works.
