Video: Can you memorise 20 random words in a couple of minutes? Yes, you can, after watching World Memory Championship winner Alex Mullen take you through a sample memory palace.
Alex is a 24-year-old medical student and the first American to win the title. Although we’ve talked about the memory palace technique a few times before (it’s what I used when training for the US Memory Championship), Alex does a great job in the video above of demonstrating how to “attach” words to specific objects and locations.
If you’re already a pro at using the memory palace, check out more tutorials at Alex’s website below, which include lessons on converting information to mental images and examples like learning Chinese or the branches of the trigeminal nerve with memory techniques. Good stuff!
