11 Secrets to Memorize Things Quicker Than Others

SUMMARY
– Your brain is like a hard drive — the space is limited. Remember Sherlock Holmes? He couldn’t name all the planets of the Solar system — this was not because he missed school or something like that, but because he was too smart to have such irrelevant information in his memory. He deliberately erased facts he would never need. This is what your brain does: it protects you from overloading with information. That’s why all new data is stored in the short-term memory, not the long-term one. So, if you don’t repeat it or use it, you forget it very quickly.
A German psychologist, Hermann Ebbinghaus researched the memory and its mechanisms. He described the Forgetting Curve which shows that just one hour after learning something new we forget more than half of the learned information. One day later we remember only about 30% percent. Well, you see where this is going.
– There is a memorization technique called «Spaced repetition». To keep some information in your head for a longer time, you need to try to put it into your long-term memory. Forced memorization is not very effective in this case because your brain can’t make sense of the information quickly and form strong associations. Here it all depends on the reason why you are learning something.
– To memorize something quickly, repeat the information right after learning it.
The second repetition should be after 15-20 minutes.
You don’t need to return to the information between repetitions — just rest and do something different. Let your brain relax.
Repeat the learned material the third time after 6-8 hours.
And you should have the final repetition 24 hours after the first contact with the information.

The Monty Hall Problem

The Monty Hall Problem is a famous (or rather infamous) probability puzzle. Ron Clarke takes you through the puzzle and explains the counter-intuitive answer.

Put simply: If you pick a goat then swap you will always win the car. And you have a 2/3 probability of picking a goat.

You can read more about this problem, and the controversy, on Marilyn Vos Savant’s website www.marilynvossavant.com

A lot of people have commented that I should have used 67% rather than 66%. When I made the video I made the choice to use 66% because I talk about “double the chance” and 66% is double 33%. I accept that 67% is more accurate, but I don’t think it affects the explanation. Thanks for all your comments!
