for years i have known about the memory training technique using imaginary sequences of events attaching them to required information to remember.. and it never attracted me regardless i am interested in improving my memory. not that i’ve got a bad memory but i do wish to make it better (i have my own techniques to train my brain). now i kind of get it why the above mentioned technique has never been interesting to me — it’s because you create imaginary made up sequences of events which may look like kind of hallucinations for your brain, creating more mess than benefit from memorized information. this my conclusion makes even more sense when i think back to the interview with the world champion of a memory competition who admitted that he was jobless for several years already not being able to find work. perhaps his general behavior was giving hints that his brain was full of meaningless made up stories (from endless trainings just to remember a small amount of necessary data). that’s my explanation now, for myself, why i never liked these specific memory training techniques. you better only acquire meaningful information and think logically, for your subconscious mind making sense of the information, supporting your thoughts and actions.
