Number Shape and Number Rhyme Memory Test

On page 60 are three columns of twenty numbers: the first in standard order; the second in reverse order; the third in random order. Complete each list, filling in, next to the number, the appropriate item from the list you have just memorised, covering the lists with your hand or with paper as you complete them and start on the next. When you have finished, calculate your score out of a possible 60 points.

You will almost certainly have made an improvement over your performance in the original test, but you might find that you are still having difficulty with certain associations. Check any such 'weak' associations and examine the reasons for any failure. These reasons usually include: not enough exaggeration and imagination; not enough colour; not enough movement; weak links; not enough sensuality; and not enough humour. Take confidence from the fact that the more you practise, the more such weak links will become a matter of history. Today and tomorrow test yourself whenever possible. Ask as many ofyour friends and acquaintances as possible to try to catch you out on lists that they make up for you to remember.

On the first few attempts, you will undoubtedly make some errors, but even so you will be performing far beyond the average. Consider any errors and mistakes you make to be good opportunities for examining- and subsequently strengthening- any areas of weakness in your memory systems and the way you apply them. If

Score, out of 60 points: 6o you persevere, you will soon be able to fire back lists given to you without any hesitation and without any fear of failure. You will then be able to use the systems confidently - for pleasure, for entertainment, for practical use, and for exercising your general memory.

As you become more skilled, keep a continuing and growing list of the areas in your life in which you will apply the systems you are currently learning.

In the next chapter you will learn the basic system used and developed by the first recorded masters of mnemonics, the Romans.
