Quadruple your learning by stimulating the senses.

by John Robson on March 15, 2009

Clipboard02Want to quadruple your memory? Write down what you’re learning so you activate more of your senses.

If we only hear information, within a day or two we typically recall 10% to 20% of what we heard.

If we write it down, we can double our recall from 20% to 40% because we can now see it. Writing is also kinesthetic so we absorb more through motion. And some of us sub-vocalize what we write, so we hear the information again.

Then if we review what we’ve written, we can double our memory again from 40% to 80% because we anchor the material from different perspectives at another time.

Remember the three key steps to learning: recall, write, review.
