Long-Term Memory
stores almost all of our experiences, and forgetting is simply a matter of not being able to access that memory

Short-Term Memory
refers to the temporary storage of information

Working Memory
relates to the information we can pay attention to and manipulate






Capacity of Our Working Memory

The maximum amount of items we can store in our working memory, or conscious mind, is three or four. If you need to hold more items in your mind at one time. use tricks like repeating items over and over or grouping items together, like we do with phone numbers.

Intelligence is related to working memory. The more information you can hold in your mind at one time. the more information you can interrelate. If you have a better working memory your creative problem solving abilities are better.

Visualize or picture in your mind what you wish to remember. A mental picture or visualization is clearer and easier to remember than words.

Repeat what you wish to learn and say it in your own words... More

Mental Patterns

Mental pattern is a memory trace formed in your brain tissue to record something that you have experienced. As you see, hear, feel, smell, sense or taste something over and over, your brain builds a pattern of it.

When you experience it again, or something like it, your brain activates the existing memory trace or patterned thinking and you go on autopilot.
