Number Shape Memory System

The Number/Shape system is very similar to the Number/Rhyme system. As with the Number/Rhyme system it is a very simple and effective way of remembering lists of items in a specific order. It is another example of a peg system.

Number Shape Memory System

This technique works by helping you to build up pictures in your mind, in which the numbers are represented by images shaped like the number, and are part of a compound image that also codes the thing to be remembered.

In the Number-Shape System, which is the second of the Peg Systems covered, the number and shape represent the hangers, and the things you wish to remember with the system represent the clothes to be hung on the hangers. The system is an easy one and uses only the numbers from 1 to 10.

In the Number-Shape System, all you have to do is think of images for each of the numbers from 11 to 20, each image reminding you of the number because both the image and the number have the same shape. You will find the Number-Shape System especially easy to learn, since it is identical in principle to the Number-Rhyme System. Also, like the Number-Rhyme System, it can be used for remembering short lists of items that you need to store in your memory for only a brief time.

In this system, as before, you use the numbers from 1 to 10, and instead of having Key Memory Images that represented by a word which rhymes with the sound of the number, you devise Key Memory Images for the numbers from 11 to 20 that resembles the shape of the number. For example, and to make your task a little easier, the Key Number-Shape Memory Word that most people use for the number 12 is duck because the number 2 is shaped like a duck, and similarly because a duck looks like a living, elegant version of the number 2.

Listed below are the numbers from 11 to 20, for each number think best image that represent the shape of the numbers. As you select the words, try to make sure that they are exceptionally good visual images, with lots of good colour and basic imagination-potential within them. They should be images to which you will be able to link the things you wish to remember with ease and enjoyment.

11 - Stick

12 - Duck

13 - Heart

14 - Chair

15 - Hook

16 - Hockey

17 - Lamp Post

18 - Specs

19 - Lollypop

20 - Bat, Ball

13 - Heart

14 - Chair

Give yourself not more than ten minutes to complete the list from 11 to 20, and even if you find some numbers difficult, don't worry; just read on.

Now that you have generated several of your own number-images and have seen other suggestions, you should select the Number-Shape Key Memory Image for each number that is the best one for you.
