Picasso VVIX : beard object jacket lightbulb bulbasaur squirtle charmander spiderman pikachu onion - i was so off

naughty America : I know this method but it's not worked with a bunch of books.

R0I3I3IE : I was going to comment but then forgot what I was going to say...

Dawit Arefaine : I was listening to music and past out and woke up to this playing on my phone lol

r mia : triple 0 is still 0 (great talk, really enjoyed it!)

Sirijan Thakur : How to tripple your memory Current memory multiplied by 3, i.e. 0*3 = 0 Congratulations!! ._.

Reg Staples : Hey all; I learned this when I was in college back in the early '90s. It absolutely works and, believe it or not, the more you use it, the faster you can memorize. Your brain will remember 10x more than you think IF you use the correct technique. I went from flunking a Sr. level class to 94% in one semester. I used it at the beginning of this video and got all my words right lol. I once impressed a table of 20 people by naming them all at the end of the event. Creativity and imagination are the keys. Research this more and have fun.

Yahu Yahu : It's easy if we have to memorize to learn tons of we have so much time to make stories?

truth speaker : Have been using same method since childhood without anyone's guidance

Eclectic Reader : This technique will not help master the expectation of five chapters worth of lecture material for an examination. That's where life has no shortcuts. Study hard, do your best to retain the information, and remain optimistic when the scan sheets are beginning to be passed out by your instructor.

Pablo Vidal Peinado : I'll show you how to cripple your memory by using this weed. Come and see.

quadgamer : OMG!!!! I naturally match a memory to an image I have in my head! Now I know that I am a supernatural.... lol

erock33 : Most small children can memorize and most students can do that relatively easy with repetition. What they can't do and struggle with mightily, is the application of information once they have it memorized. Application of knowledge is much more useful than memorization. He used application in demonstrating a better way to achieve a low level cognitive ability. Unclear on how helpful that would be in the real world. Great for carnivals and side shows though.

Rem : I fell asleep for 1 hour and a half while doing I'm too tired

Syed Sym : I successfully memorized the last 10 presidents name.. And I am an Indian. Awesome

Nyah Ewan : I memorized all the words in the correct order like this: a BEARD is an OBJECT on your face. It’s like a JACKET on your face cause it keeps it warm. A SECRET is kept on EDGE. After the edge there is NOTHING. We’re going on a DATE to listen to a BAND and we drank PUNCH. After the date we stopped for GAS.

Beaches south of L.A. : I found this guy's speaking dynamic to be painfully bland. It was difficult to pay attention because he never gets to any point.

Darth Vader : I think i have so much bizzar images in my head... It starts getting mixed up... .. Sometimes i get wilberforce mixed up with shakespare 💀

فولفولي : All I have remebred was 3 words hh

sanel hodzic : My memory has tripled... 0*3= 0. 🗿

Kate Si : I'm sure this works well for things that are just regurgitation of a glossary. I'd love to see someone talk about successfully using methods like this to memorize say, math theorems, or physics concepts, or something that doesn't have words that neatly fit into normal visual language because the concepts are very abstract and word association is probably less useful.

Jacques Nicolay : So.... how does this help me memorize a thermodynamics problem -,-

Sanne Mabrouk : A really strong, honest and inspiring talk.

Simone : I do not see any experimental data though.

FitMixMotivation : But you prompted their memory by saying “what happened here” and “remember your neck had ?” Furthermore you took way longer than 30 seconds for memorizing it which is all the time you gave us on our own.

DA Way : But I can't see john cena.....

frank maldari : What if you forget the story line?

abmaximus : This strategy is impressive to people who hear this mnemotechnic solution for the first time, but in most learning situations the brain doesn't work this way easily enough to make up stories and remember all of them. It's a pretty good idea to use it once in a blue moon, but not on a daily basis.

Andre Santos : I'm using this for learning hiragana and katakana

Tarun Kumar : The ‘beard’ed ‘object’ (mannequin) is wearing a ‘jacket’ whose secret pocket has a sharp ‘edge’ which is ‘nothing’ special to this ‘date’! The ‘band’ in the background packs a ‘punch’ and pfff the green ‘gas’ rises from the bottom of the stage!!!!

Naima Zaheer : Its easy relating things to your body but when you have to learn a new language. When there are tons of words to be learned!

Mohammed Hussain : lol what was that.

pittsburgh199 : Good video. Big shoutout to Donny Trump as well <3

Jes Kvell : me after listening: doing new things because i'm inspired *3 days later* lying in bed watching silly youtube videos

Grace Hayes : What was the trick? I forgot

David G. : I am first Russian who knows all American presidents in the right order! Thx , great talk!

Pragya Bharti : Great idea... Learning,experimenting,believing ,aquiring and getting better at anything... It's so positive and exciting. Thanku so much:)

Deshmukh Ganesh : video is nice, content is best. can you tell me how can I remember code and computer programs(I request, please don't give answers as practice and other regular ones :P)

Zoonofski : Has anyone been able to find the company that he works for?

lets help : thankyou very much for your guidance

Talha Hassan : 9/10 i imagined a guy with beard holding a object, he is wearing a jacket . He has a secret , he is on the edge of giving it away nothing happened today (date). Suddenly someone punches him and he can't breath properly (gas) try this

dkmohanty baba : Worst technique.u took more than 5 mints to memorize 30 seconds word.

Rippertear : "I want you to think of someone you know called John..." I think of John Cena... "I want you to see him..."

Tony Anytime : if your trying to remember a subject better to understand the subject than learning random thoughts just to remember terms.

Jont Noneya : Too many additional images - "What happened with your shoulders?" I answered, "Weight was lifted" when the answer was "You paid your bills". This is the problem with this technique. Images can get distorted and rearranged just as much as any facts.

Michelle Schultze : first try beard object jacket secret edge nothing date band _ goes

Helena Kandjumbwa : This was hella dope but John real but hurt to be throwing the whole sun at my feet.

Dii Sp8s : I have a photographic memory which is a gift and a curse. Unfortunately, I can't turn it on and off. Anything I lay my eyes on is instantly etched into my brain. I also memorize most of what I hear. My frds think it's cool, but they don't realize how much random info that's stored in my brain. I wish I cld forget/delete all of the useless info I don't need.

Pethree Asiain : Okay now, he obviously gave the audience more time on using his method. So I'm not really sure that it really is more effective compared to other techniques that one could have used instead.

Cycle Green : Brain synapses are a bit like a muscle. The more you exercise them the stronger they get. I have used this fantastic pictorial memory method for many years, and it still amazes me. I began by memorising a pack of cards, (The Knave with a good heart (J-H) took a stroll in a perfectly dug garden (A-S), he walked down three dark rows of bushes (3-C) and came across his mother (Q-H), she was holding 7 diamonds....etc.) The amazing brain :)
