Memories of items should not be difficult;

Listing by heart is good at being able to memorize, but what happens when you need to memorize more than one or groups of things?

For example, suppose you want to remember the US states, usually called the New England States, which consist of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

You can simply use the Peg system to memorize each list individually, by making a simple sentence for each word, however, there is one more technique that many offer for these types of lists.


Imagine a room in your home that you know well, be it your living room, kitchen, bedroom or office. Imagine all the different things in that room: furniture, decorations, linen, appliances, lamps and other lighting, and more.

When you use Roman room techniques, you combine an object, a person, or a word with something in each of your rooms, so when you need to remember that word, just remember its connection.

For example, you will use your living room for the New England States. What is the main piece of furniture you are sitting on? Now it's all about Maine. What's the freshest part of the living room (you don't have to be technically precise, just pick something new than many)? This will be related to New Hampshire.

Now imagine the panels running to the bottom of this room. You want to keep them sealed so that no glass enters, so the base boards are now associated with Vermont.

What is the biggest living room item? TV or TV cabinet. What has the largest mass will be associated with Massachusetts.

You have a small table or other item that sits in the room itself. Draw this little thing as an island and it will be tied to Rhode Island.

The hall that leads to the next room ties the two together so it will represent Connecticut.

And you have it there. Now go back and think about the things in your living room. You imagine your favorite chair … why? This is your main place to sit. What does the hall represent? Board boards are sealed because …

By using a room that you know very well and by doing this simple association technique, you can quickly and easily remember these groups of information.


We can apply this technique using Ivy League colleges, in particular Brown, Columbia, Yale, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton.

Choose another room in your home that you know very well. What about the kitchen?

The easiest college to remember could be Brown. What is brown in your kitchen? How about coffee? Coffin currently represents Brown.

Colombia can be much more difficult. But do you have lips on your kitchen window or on another room door? Do the blinds or the door keeper look like a straight line, like a column? Anything in your kitchen that comes up and down like a pillar will represent Colombia.

Look at your sink & # 39; faucet. If the water came out too hot and burned you, wouldn't you like it? So Yale represents the hot water faucet.

Cornell can also be a little easier. You have your holders of corn. Or a jar of corn with a cupboard.

What about Dartmouth? There are probably many round things in your kitchen, such as a dinner plate or a large plate. A large round object is very similar to an archer, so it will represent Dartmouth.

The butter stored in the fridge is difficult to spread, and something hard to present to Harvard.

The pencils and pencils you keep on the phone are presented by the University of Pennsylvania.

And as for Princeton, you might be thinking of a chair in your kitchen or neighborhood, such as a high chair for a child, or sitting down to eat. Your chair is like your throne … convenient for a prince.


By now you have probably realized that the Roman room technique does not use exact words or phrases from the lists you are trying to remember, and this is an important point.

If you try to use the exact word, you're probably going to hang on. After all, who has something in his house with the word "Harvard" if you don't go there and buy a shirt?

The thing is, you want to remember something that will remind you of the word or item you are trying to remember again. The hard word may remind Harvard. The word shout can remind you of Yale and more.

This is also something to remember, which we have discussed so far in almost all memory techniques. That woman in the wedding dress at the last stop at the bus stop should remind you of dressing in a salad, and of course you can replace anything that works for you. Imagine a man trying to get a horse (on the farm) to go to Ranch dressing, or imagine a woman at a bus stop eating pasta for your Italian dressing.

Of course, this worked and worked when you were trying to remember numbers that were accurate. Getting a "near" phone number won't help you, so how do you remember the numbers, especially when they are too long?
