Memory Tricks: Roman Room Method

“I Forgot!” Nothing will bring out the beast in my wife quite like that little phrase right there. I think it’s because I use it so often. I am not a list maker, I am a man. I do forget a lot of things too. Important things I am told. I have never forgotten a child at a rest stop but I have forgotten to mention the 10 people that are coming over to watch the game this weekend. So how can we improve our ability to remember? Let’s go back in time for the answer?

The legend says that ancient Greek poet called Simonides was invited to a banquet to recite his soliloquy. Shortly after he left the place, the roof caved in, killing everyone inside. The bodies were so disfigured that they could be no longer identified. The authorities called Simonides in hope he could remember at least some of the people who were there. To their surprise, he named each person who was there.

The method is simple and it works ( Don’t tell the wife, I still want my I forgot card to be valid) Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
