I used to hold the record for the most numbers memorized in 5 minutes in the USA. I memorized a 167 digit number breaking the old record of 160 digits by 7 digits. It was a goal I was proud to of accomplished and to this day I still am. It was a record though that only stood for a year and it was shattered with a new record of 348 (or something like that. I’m not good at remembering numbers)
So how did I do it?
Well the first thing I did is memorize 25 pieces of furniture in my home. This is known as the Roman Room or loci method. If you haven’t read up on that…well….what are you waiting for….do it!
Here is a short video on that explanation
Then after you have the spots in your home desingated all you need is pictures for numbers. There are a couple of ways to do this. One is very simple. You think of a pencil for #1 because a pencil looks like a #1. You think of fingers for #10 because of ten fingers. With some numbers you can do this but what about 87? It gets tougher to think of a picture. But you still need pictures for numbers. This is where you have to come up with a system.
In the video below, I describe an advanced method to memorize numbers known as Character/Action/Object. My suggestion is to watch the video all the way through and then enter your email address in the Youtube description to get my suggested pictures for numbers.
