Which of the following is easier to recall?
What you had for lunch on this date last year
Your own phone number
Your brain loves repetition. That is how you tell it that ‘this new piece of information is important’. Imagine you got a new phone number, you would remind yourself of it until it was committed to memory.
Your brain loves repetition.
More accurately your brain loves spaced repetition. That is, being reminded of the new information at ever increasing intervals. This exercises your brain to work to remember the information just at the point it is about to forget it. This strengthens your neural pathways.
The reason you remember your phone number is because you decided it is useful to commit it to your long term memory. You have probably forgotten your lunch from last year within an hour of finishing it, never to think about it again. Why? It’s not important to remember it so you don’t remind yourself of it. Your brain loves repetition.
New information leaves your brain quickly unless it is reinforced.
