Part II: MEMORY SYSTEMS > KEY FUNCTION #7 MEMORY PEGS

Chapter 11. KEY FUNCTION #7 MEMORY PEGS

One of the most effective methods for using the process of association in a systematic way is the mnemonic (nee-mon-ik) device (often called memory pegs.) This technique is important as most people haven’t trained their minds to use association effectively. How many times have you heard someone say—“That reminds me…” This is an example of non-controlled association.

Memory pegs will provide you with a system that can be used in a wide variety of situations. Instead of being stuck with a non-controlled association process. You can adapt the system you build. A memory peg system makes it possible for you to have an systematic arrangement of storage places in your mind in which permanent items are engraved. New thoughts, ideas or objects can then be associated to these permanent items to help you remember the new information. When you do this you simply peer into your memory bank and retrieve the information you want to remember.
