Just imagine what it would be like once you develop a photographic memory. You could use it while speed reading to learn new facts, names, and concepts in a flash. Well you can have a photographic memory, and this article will help get your started.

When you think about a photograph what is the first thing that comes to mind? A picture. Your brain likes to think using pictures. Learning how to create pictures to lock in new ideas, and vocabulary is the first step in developing your new powerful memory. Let’s focus upon learning new names using this technique.

Here is the first name I want you to learn: “Robin”. When you think of the word “Robin” what comes to mind? A bird! Now think about a giant bird sitting on top of the head of this person whose name is “Robin”. Whatever you see this person you will think about the bird. Like magic you have locked in their name. Let’s learn another name.

A common name is “John.” This is also the word used for a man’s bathroom. Picture a giant urinal sitting on top of your friend’s head. Whenever you see this person you can’t help but think about that giant toilet sitting on top of their head. You have now locked their name into memory. How can you do this with a more complicated name like mine–Howard?

With more complicated names you can break it down into syllables having different pictures. The first syllable is “How,” and that is a question. So I picture a giant question mark. The second syllable sound like the word, “wood.” To remember the name Howard, I picture a giant question mark on a piece of wood. Instantly, I’ve learned a new name.

Try breaking down people’s names into pictures. The more exaggerated the picture the better it works. Soon you will be a maven at learning new names.
