Method Of Loci
A way of increasing the effectiveness of our memory. To use this method involves memorising a series of different locations (such as rooms in a house or points on a walk) and then imagining one of the items to be remembered in each location. To remember the items, we then mentally walk through the house, entering each room in turn and ‘seeing’ the item there. For example, to remember the BPS ethical guidelines, we might go from the kitchen where we see a very competent and professional cook at work, to the dining room where there is a deceptive clock that always tells the wrong time (keywords are ‘competence’ and ‘deception’).
