Here's a post about a useful embellishment I've used to improve my use of memory systems. For those who are not familiar with basic memory-improving systems, and on reading the post think that I must be taking drugs, I recommend the books of Tony Buzan and Harry Lorrayne to learn about such memory systems.
Is there anyone reading this who has tried memory systems? Such systems were a godsend to me at school and I've enjoyed using them ever since. Are they suited to everyone though? I tried to teach someone at work how to form exaggerated associations and I'm sure they thought that I was mad.
