Text memory training program

The first day (Saturday) — mastering the principles
and memorizing a simple text

10:00-11:30

Principles of memorizing text

  • three levels of text: information block, paragraph, facts;
  • two criteria for the quality of text memorization;
  • two approaches to the text: linear and nonlinear memorization;
  • four levels of memorization precision: involuntary memorization, main sections, paragraphs, facts;
  • three floors of the text pyramid: the text, the semantic anchor point, the image;
  • text collapsing and expanding;
  • memorization algorithm: from the paragraph to the information block;
  • practice: start with anecdotes — the simplest text, but a text that is nevertheless complete in meaning.
How to memorize text — the pyramid of text.
The text pyramid: we roll up the paragraphs into images and memorize them sequentially. Then we unroll the images into the original text

12:00-13:30

Text passages

  • how to memorize factual information and encyclopedic information;
  • practice: memorizing passages from scientific journals.
How to memorize text — facts from scientific journals.

Secrets of the mnemonist: the more exact facts in the text, the closer to the text he memorizes. The more difficult it is for others, the easier it is for him

14:30-16:00

Simple articles

  • how to memorize short articles with few facts;
  • practice: memorizing articles on history, literature, and art.
How to memorize text — simple articles.
At memory training sessions we often go to Britannica. There’s always something to memorize

16:30-18:00

Difficult articles

  • how to memorize long articles with lots of facts;
  • practice: memorizing Wikipedia articles.
How to memorize text — difficult articles.
The information in memory will be organized like links on Wikipedia.
A link in an article is an image in your mind. You imagine the image, and as a link, you go to another article in your head

The second day (Sunday) — memorizing a difficult text

10:00-11:30

Textbooks

  • how to upload textbooks in their entirety in your head, capturing the sequence of terminology, the hierarchy of concepts, and the table of contents;
  • practice: memorizing a textbook based on the sequence of terms and definitions;
  • practice: memorizing a textbook based on a hierarchy of concepts;
  • practice: memorizing a textbook based on the table of contents.
How to memorize text — textbooks.

Many people think that the most difficult textbooks are in chemistry, physics, and medicine. But it is much harder to memorize psychology, philosophy, and other sciences, where much goes beyond the sensory experience

12:00-13:30

Lectures and methodological literature

  • how to memorize lectures to perform without paper;
  • how to memorize methodological literature to put the information you read into practice;
  • practice: memorize verbatim Winston Churchill’s first speech as Prime Minister;
  • practice: memorizing Robert Cialdini’s “Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.”
