How to Remember Numbers


In almost everything we do, there are numbers involved - telephone numbers, credit card and ATM numbers, zip codes, passwords, calculations, and many others!

 Whether you love them or you hate them, numbers are here to stay. In order to cope up with today’s hectic lifestyle, you have to be able to remember a lot of numbers, or you’ll end up getting all confused and disorganized.

Contrary to words that can be associated with an object, numbers are difficult to remember because they are abstract. If I say think of a pen, your mind immediately visualizes the pen. But if I say 2473, you will have a hard time
committing it to memory.

In this tip, you’ll be taught how to use all your senses to remember numbers and how to convert numbers to words so you can perform your usual transactions quicker and more efficiently.

1.Use Your Senses
Particularly the ears and eyes, may prove to be effective in recalling numbers.

Here’s how it works:
Repeat the number several times to yourself. It may be difficult for you to
remember a number such as “2895” as an abstract thing, but easy for you to
remember the sound of “twenty-eight ninety-five.”

You may also visualize the number. Write it down several times to lodge it
to your memory bank. An even better idea is to create a vivid image of that
number for better memory retention.

Visualize “2895” beautifully laid out on a billboard in large sizes and luminous colors, with pieces of jewelry all around it. The number just follows you wherever you go.

You see it everywhere. It’s on your bathroom mirror, on the TV screen, in the fireplace, it just won’t let you go! You can even intensify the image by making a jingle or slogan like “2895, I like you to jive!”

You may forget that the number of a certain house or office is 2895, but
you may easily remember the sound of the spoken words "two-eight-nine-five," or
the form of "2895" as you see it on the door of the place.

2.Converting Numbers to Words
One very common yet practical technique to remember numbers is to transform them to words. Probably the easiest way to do this is to assign each number 1 to 9 a letter equivalent: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, and so on.

Using this technique, 742 turns into GDB. The letters GDB doesn’t make much sense, so you have to turn it into an acrostic. How about “Great Dancing Bellies

The next time you want to recall 742, just recall “Great Dancing Bellies” and convert the first letters of each word back to their number equivalents. If you think the phrase “Great Dancing Bellies” may still slip your mind, create an image of fat tummies dancing merrily to the beat of the drum.

Here’s another example. If you need to remember your system password
which is 135, then you may imagine your computer “Allowing Cute Entrance”
to someone as adorable as you...

When you get your imagination involved, remembering numbers isn't all that difficult.
