Quizes (questions & answers) is a very good way to improve visualisation skills. 

The following examples are taken from Game 3: Exercise 14.

Ideas for pictures:


A columb and a bar.

Or a columb in your favourite bar. 


A dove in a baby cot. Well, you can tuck the bird in, if you so wish. 


Frost should be easy enough. Some icicles will do. Or you saw the film with Michael Keaton: Jack Frost.

A snowman will be actually ok here. With a robe (as a picture for Robert) around him. And now, make the robed snowman write something in the snow. And don’t forget to feel the cold.  Bring in all the senses if you can. 


Any poet that comes to mind?Any film?

Maybe ‘the poets society’?

If nothing comes to mind, and you feel a bit childish, try kid’s language and imagine popo (as in bottom).You will notice: that’s works just fine. 


 Ok, this may be a little bit rude. Do you hear it yourself?Pack a poo. And scribble some Chinese letter on the poo. With your finger. Now, that should be memorable enough.  


Surely, that must be easy.The ticket itself.With or without the shop you usually go to. Aren’t we all playing sometimes.




Now: take all the images of the question and all the images of the answer and CONNECT them. (as you have learned in Step 1: Association).  

Theory into Practice:

Next time you read the question, you will SEE the image/picture of the question, and then the image/picture of the answer will simply “appear” in you head. 


Game 3 contains 50 exercises.

Quite a wide range of topics.

You don’t have to finish all of them to become a Memory Master.

It is rather important that you notice HOW you progress.

And then you can apply this skill to any area in your life. 


Best wishes from the West of Ireland.

PS: Remember and short re-cap:

Game 3 deals with visualisation. This is: changing an item (any item) into a picture. To see it in your mind’s eye.

Very important here: If you don’t have a picture: you CANNOT remember. If you do have a picture, it is really, really easy to remember.

Game 2 deals with quantity, and how to remember items in correct sequence. This is NOT a pre-requisite for Game 3.

However, you should have mastered Step 1: Association. How to connect two items.
