School of Phenomenal Memory
Just completed the first lesson last night and learned how to easily memorize 25 random objects. I can still remember the list from last night too! Pretty cool stuff. I’ll be posting actual articles on my progress & will keep posting little updates in this discussion too.
Damn if this works really well for you Jordan I am willing to pony up 400 dollars to increase my memory retention. Looking forward to your updates on this program!!!!
Jordan, are you still going strong?
hey jordan i was interested in this program and was wondering how your progress was going and if it is a scam or not thanks
I’m interested in how the progress is going as well. I just finished reading ‘Moonwalking with Einstein’ by Josh Foer, and he outlines various mnemonic ‘tricks’ that allowed him to win the U.S. Memory Championship. However, the tricks pretty much useless in day-to-day life (ie. memorizing 25 random objects, or a string of numbers, etc). I’m interested to see if the course can improve our memory capacity, although doubtful because MWE claims that’s currently impossible.
@jordan, Hey Jordan I’m very interested in phenomenal memory and I’ve heard a lot of different things (i have done tons of research on it for about a year just looking at what people have said) about it and I’m just a high school student so if i were able to come up with that kind of money that would be huge. But i want to make sure it’s legitimate before i make any big moves. Because i read about someone not even getting a refund after realizing that the coarse didn’t work for her even though it clearly states that you will receive a refund if it doesn’t work out for you. I also read that all the testimonials were required if you wanted to get to a new level/coarse. so i don’t want to trust testimonials from the actual phenomenal memory website since they obviously want my money and it could totally be a scam. I know that was kind of long winding but what I’m getting at is i would love to hear from your experience with phenomenal memory if you did in fact take the coarse and are of coarse willing to share and I’m sure others are as well.
I’d like to know how well this worked.
To be honest, anyone who makes extraordinary claims and continuously references itself seems completely illegitimate. But, it does seem like this coarse was taken a while ago, and I’d like to know whether or not it “works.”
@jordan I actually started taking this course about 10 months ago and had to stop after a week or so. First I will explain that it definitely can work (maybe not EXACTLY like a computer, but similarly) and then I will explain why I stopped.
1. So basically you start by memorizing a letter to number code:
THEN you take those letter to number codes from earlier and use the letters to create images that associate to each letter and number. For instance, 1 is N and Nose, 2 is tHz and Hair. So in this way your brain learns multiple associations with a single “bit” of information. And our ability to recall information from memory is greatly dependent on multiple associations. For instance, if you hear a song or smell something familiar, your mind can instantly jump to a random memory associated with it. In the same manner, when you study a new topic, the more existing you have on it will help you to learn it faster. Well, this code learning helps your brain to do that, eventually, automatically.
2. Here’s why I stopped:
Just what the dr ordered..
Hey! I am almost finished with this course, and…
Well, I have been memorizing pages within books, and several hours worth of video lessons on IT and well, pretty much anything else I felt like memorizing. I do not forget, unless I choose to (and even then it’s actually pretty hard)!
1. The course is hard. It takes a long time to finish. It takes a lot of effort. Sometimes it’s excruciatingly boring. But… do you want photographic memory or not?
2. If you really don’t have money, there ARE ways to get things for free in the internet… You might want to look up the word “torrent” on google or something like that. Just sayin’.
:) I still have yet to find somebody else I know who wants to go through the course. It’s funny to see how they just pass up this opportunity of a lifetime.
