How to triple your memory by using this trick | Ricardo Lieuw On | TEDxHaarlem

Do you recall studying for your exams? You probably do. But do you remember how you studied, how you memorized French words or the year of the American civil war? Now, that’s probably harder. As a teenager, Ricardo Lieuw On was packing groceries when he knew what he wanted to study: he wanted to learn about learning. He picked up a study in psychology and learned how to reduce his learning time from 3 hours to 1 hour on the same piece of content. He gained the same knowledge in 200% less time. And specially for TEDxHaarlem, he shares the secret of his technique. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

What You See First Reveals Unexpected Truth About You

Optical illusions are tricky, to say the least. We are used to believing what we see because we are sure that nobody can trick our eyes. But some pictures can make us see things that aren’t there. It’s because we don’t see with our eyes, we see with our brain. And the brain can easily be tricked. You might see one thing in the image, yet someone else will try to convince you that it’s another. And that’s exactly why optical illusions can be like a personality test. The test is pretty simple. As soon as you see the image, make note of what popped out at you first. Depending on what you saw immediately, you’ll get a description of some attribute to your personality. Here we go! TIMESTAMPS: Optical illusion #1 1:14 Optical illusion #2 1:54 Optical illusion #3 2:45 Optical illusion #4 3:43 Optical illusion #5 4:32 Optical illusion #6 5:47 Optical illusion #7 6:36 Optical illusion #8 7:34 Optical illusion #9 8:17 Optical illusion #10 9:13 #opticalillusion #personalitytest Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ Mooney Face Picture. An example of the face photographs used by the cognitive psychologist Craig Mooney: By Adapted from Le Cerveau à tous les niveaux, http://www.lecerveau.mcgill.ca/flash/a/a_02/a_02_p/a_02_p_vis/a_02_p_vis.html, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=1916754 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY: - #1 Did you see a tree first thing off the bat? If so, you tend to pay a bit too much attention to details. On the bright side, you’re really great at reading other people’s moods. - #2 If you can’t help but see a duck, then you’re probably right-brained, meaning you're more of an artistic and creative type. You have a well-developed intuition and a rich imagination. - #3 If it was a candlestick that drew your attention first, you’re great at seeing the big picture and don’t get lost in all the details. Your critical thinking skills are also pretty sharp. - #4 Do you immediately see a young woman in a fancy hat and fur coat looking away from the viewer? Then you have a joyful and optimistic personality. You can be a little too impulsive, though, living your best life in the moment and all… - #5 Did you see a car in this picture? If so, you value your freedom. You prefer to move at your own speed and have things go according to your own plan. Your ability to notice finite details fascinates many. - #6 If you immediately saw a beautiful young woman, then the right hemisphere of your brain is developed better than the left one. Again, this means that you’re a creative and artistic person. - #7 Is that big crocodile jumping out at you? Then you’re probably a pretty practical individual. Cautious and careful, you prefer to avoid any risk-taking. From time to time, you concentrate more on the negative aspects of life instead of its bright sides. - #8 Most people notice a dog's tail and hind leg in this picture. If you're one of them, you always try to look for original decisions to your problems. You use not only your logical thinking but also a creative approach. - #9 For those who see two crocodiles touching noses, this means that you always try to be in control of every situation in your life. You'd rather be in charge than obey orders. - #10 If the first thing you saw in this picture was a dark-haired woman sitting on the ground, then you have sharp observational skills and an eye for detail. Also, you're a reserved and introverted person.

What If The Sun Went Out for Just One Day

Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Sun just suddenly stopped shining? The first thing that probably comes to your mind is that it would get a whole lot darker and colder. True, but that doesn’t even begin to describe what kind of catastrophic event it would be because eventually humankind would meet its eminent demise. In the first few minutes after the Sun stops burning, life goes on as usual here on Earth because the sunlight itself is still traveling towards the planet. But after 8½ minutes, the skies go black, as if someone just flipped a switch. After an hour, once everybody has realized the situation they’re in, panic ensues on the side of the planet where it's supposed to be daytime. The temperature across the globe drops by several degrees and just keeps going down. One of the worst things is that photosynthesis stops within 24 hours. Within a week or so, the average temperature on the planet falls below zero. Most plants have already perished due to the cold, and heat-loving animals start to disappear shortly after. People build shelters and try to survive the cold and lack of food. They might be more successful in areas with a lot of geothermal activity, such as Iceland. After just one year, the planet might host some types of bacteria that can survive even in unbelievably low temperatures. But other life forms on the surface have been wiped away. Just remember, though, this scenario was just a hypothetical “what if?”. As for the real future of the Earth, it’ll stay firmly “tied” to the Sun. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS The first minutes after the Sun stops burning 0:54 An hour after the Sun went out 2:21 A day after the Sun went out 3:27 A week after the Sun went out 4:14 A year after the Sun went out 5:36 What happens to planet Earth itself? 6:26 The real future of the Earth 8:35 SUMMARY Summary: -8½ minutes after the Sun stopped burning, the whole entire planet would be plunged into darkness. You wouldn’t see the Moon either since there’d be no sunlight for it to reflect. -An hour after the Sun went out, people would start to fall into the depths of depression. The temperature across the globe would drop by several degrees and keep going down. -If the Sun didn’t return after one day, the planet would fall in utter chaos. Every living creature on Earth would start having difficulties due to the diminishing oxygen. -A week after the Sun went out, the temperature all over the world would drop below zero. Most plants would have already perished due to the cold, and heat-loving animals would start to disappear shortly after. People would build shelters and try to survive the cold and lack of food. -After a year without the Sun, the surface of the Earth would become as cold as 100° below zero. The top layers of the seas and oceans would have frozen over by this time, the only survivors among people (if any) would be on the ocean floor, near geothermal vents. There would be no life on the planet. -If the Sun stopped burning, its gravitational pull would vanish, and the Earth would fly away into outer space at the same speed. After 43,000 years, the Earth would near Alpha Centauri, the closest star to us. -As for the real future of the Earth, it’ll stay firmly “tied” to the Sun that will increase in size in several billion years. Hopefully by that time humanity will have found ways to explore and colonize other planets orbiting younger stars.

We learn things throughout our entire lives, but we still don’t know everything because we forget a lot of information. Bright Side will tell you about 11 simple memorizing tips that will help you remember everything and improve your memory.

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.
