MEMORY SELDOM SOMETIMES OFTEN
1. I have a hard time remembering people’s names. ? ? ?
2. I forget where I put things (and have to search for my glasses, my purse or wallet). ? ? ?
3. I use systems (acronyms, rhythm) to remember multiple items. ? ? ?
4. I repeat things to imprint them for easier recall. ? ? ?
5. If I give my mind an order to remember something, it will. ? ? ?
6. I write down important reminders, so I’m sure not to forget them. ? ? ?
7. I help myself remember things by linking them to something else so I can trigger recall through association. ? ? ?
8. I review what I’ve read and heard to help imprint the information for better retention. ? ? ?
9. If something is “on the tip of my tongue,” I try to remember outstanding details of the situation, and the word or phrase I’m looking for “pops up.” ? ? ?
