At Decision Science News, we have all kinds of numbers memorized: IP addresses, passport numbers, phone numbers, bank account numbers, logarithms, etc. Once you have stuff like this memorized, you’ll start to realize how much less of a hassle it is to have things in memory rather than on paper or disk. Besides, it’s fun.
But how is it done?
It is done with the digit-sound method, which we learned from Professor Jaap Murre’s neuroMod site at the University of Amsterdam.
