Ep 277: How to Remember Names and the Psychology of that BBC Interrupted Interview

Mar 23, 2017, 01:16 AM

It's hard to remember names - here's how to do it. You'll use your imagination and some weird imagery - but this works.
Here's another great use of mnemonics. I'll give you a bunch of people's names and describe the images I created to help me remember them. Give your brain a little room to roam and put it to practical use. Also, I look at recent research that provides yet another reason why names are hard to remember. By the way, let me ask you a question: How many of each animal did Moses take on the ark? The answer: 0 (re-read the question...).

I also take a look at that viral video called the "BBC Interrupted Interview". What's the psychology behind why many people thought the woman in the video was a nanny when she was the mother. We'll see how stereotypes develop.
