Memory Palace

In order to memorize the correct order of any information that you want to learn quickly and easily, you need to use a memory palace.

I outline how to do that in my House Locations Memory Palace video.

The idea is to imagine that you are at the front door of your home and then open that door to walk into the first room in your house. What is that room for you?

The first room that I walk into, is the Living Room.

You then want to choose 5 spots in this room and go clockwise.

For example, when I walk into the living room, the first thing on the left-hand side that I see is the Window. The second item that I see is the Table. I then move on over to the sofa. After that, I would see the mirror. The 5th location in the living room for me, is the TV.

Now go ahead and create your memory palace by doing the same process in your home. Choose 5 spots in 5 rooms/areas.


Now in order to memorize the US Presidents in the correct order, just turn their name into a mnemonic image association and have it do some sort of action on the corresponding location. 

For example, let’s take George Washington and turn that name into an image. I would picture a Washing Machine for Washington. I would then take that Washing Machine and link it to my first location, which is the Window. I wouldn’t just have it sitting there statically. I would make visualize myself turning into the hulk and tossing the Washing Machine into the Window and seeing the Window smash into a million pieces. I would see the soap suds coming out of the Washing Machine and covering the entire Window area as I begin to lick it. The more vivid that you make these stories, the easier that it will be for you to recall the images. 

You then do that same thing for every single US President and link its image to its corresponding location.

Afterwards, make sure to review each story on the location. 

As an advanced memory training tip, if you are already familiar with how to use a memory palace, then go ahead and link 2 images on one location. The first two presidents are George Washington and John Adams. See the Washing Machine (Washington) spitting out Apples (Adams) onto the first location. 

If this is the first time that you are using the memory palace memorization method, then only associate one image per one location as it will make the recall process much easier.
