There is no difference at all.
Some people find numbers easier.
And for some people it is easier to remember names.
That is however only a personal preference.
In relation to Memory Techniques:
Whatever you want to remember: you have to change it into a picture.
If you want to remember for example the name: carpenter, then you might see someone working in that profession. Fine.
Or you see the pop-group: The Carpenters. And hear Karen Carpenter singing with her very distinctive voice. That’s fine as well.
How about a foreign name, like Petrogelli?
Same story: change it into a picture.
Maybe you see: my Pet rows in jelly. That’ll do nicely.
Sometimes people say: numbers don’t mean anything to me.
The message is the same as with names: change it into a picture.
I, personally, follow this system: I change numbers into people.
So many variations are possible here.
Just to kick-start it here:
1 = the letter A.
2 = the letter B.
So, if I want to remember the number 12, I might see the singer Adrea Bocelli (you noticed his initals are AB = 12).
If you follow a system like this it is really, really easy to remember a number. Any number.
How about long a number?
Follow the three steps:
Change the number into a picture (Step 3: Visualisation);
Then have your journey ready (Step 2: Location)
And then connect the two in the most bizarre way (as you’ve learned in Step 1: Association).
