Primacy principle - people remember more of the first things they hear or see. The brain remembers better things from the beginning of a learning period.
Recency principle - we remember more of the last things we see or hear. The The brain remembers better things from the end of a learning period.
The Von Restorff/Imagination Effect - the brain remembers things that stand out during the learning period. Multisensory images are great.
The Association Effect- we remember whatever is linked or connected, especially to ourselves and our own worlds.
The Understanding and Misunderstanding Effect - it is possible to remember accurately that which never happened. This relates to the brain's phenomenal ability to imagine, daydream, create and associate.
The Interest Effect - if you are interested, all Learning, Thinking, Memory and Creativity improve in one immediate, giant leap.
Meaning/Gestalt- meaning and insight become part of the memory and learning process, as your brain takes in bits of information and pieces them together to create the holistic picture. Your brain takes in bits of information and pieces them together to create a holistic picture.
I like 'systems' where the dots-are-joined for understanding. MIG does this for me - it makes the complexity of memory as a simple understandable picture in the mind. Link this with mindmaps and understanding gets easier too. A week after reading it and I am showing it to my undergrads as a memory aid.
Next semester, I'll be teaching marketing and it fits right in there too but in a broader sense - e.g. as an adjunct sales technique to get a sales message/promo to impact well. It has so many uses. I was amazed: MIG has changed my view on my own memory capacity too... Where will that lead? I'll let you know after my doctorate **that's why I searched for a tool to improve my memory**
I like the book & highly recommend it [& no, I don't know the people but have been using another Mindwerx tool - Mindmaps - for a long time].
Why did I think Kindle technology could convey The Most Important Graph In The World? I can resize text but not the graphics! When looking at a graph or Mind Map, size matters. I am just not able to see the graph.
Content: I have only made it through 1/3 if book. The information is insightful and an interesting. It helps to understand the way we learn.
I probably will not finish the book because of my frustration with the graphics.
Too bad the paperback is not available.
