The following applies to the business as well as to the private sector: anyone that can remember names and faces is able to avoid pitfalls and as a result may gain sympathy and goodwill. The opposite is also true, as many of us know from personal experience: we simply do not remember someone's name or where we know a particular person from. This can quickly lead to an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation.
However, it is anything but difficult to significantly increase one's memory performance. In the summer of 2011 the Mehrwert-Agentur Thomas oHG very successfully introduced the mnemo app "Numbers-Memory (Numbers-Mnemo)" for the iPhone. The app provided the necessary techniques to easily remember numbers. More than 100 5-star reviews, multiple number 1 placement in the app category "Education" and placing in the top 50 of the overall charts are evidence of the impressive benefits of the app. "Face-Mnemo" is the next app in the series. It is specifically designed to remember names and faces even better. Memory coach Michael Gloschewski helped to develop the new app and provided the necessary technical know-how.
Face-Mnemo: Mnemonic images for first and last names: Mnemonic techniques are used in order to better memorize information. Since it is much easier to remember images, an essential part of the applied technique consists of converting concepts into images. Those images will be incorporated into a movie that will run in our head when we want to recall certain facts. The movie should be "lively" and appeal to all five senses. A great tip: the person whose name we want to remember should play the main part in order to make the association more successful. It is a lot of fun to play around with memory training in regard to names. Many last names are based on occupations. The instructions for our movie should be that certain individuals are working as a tailor, fisherman, shepherd, cook or judge. This also works with names that have a specific meaning like "wolf", "stone" or "sparrow".
When it comes to famous last names like "Merkel", it is a good idea to integrate the celebrity into the movie. It could show Angela Merkel shaking hands with the person whose name we are trying to remember. The technique can also be applied to abstract names. The name should simply be broken down into syllables, which may be associated with similar sounding words that are easily remembered. Once the mnemonic system is understood, it can also be used to recall first names. The app features many practical examples, in depth assignments and useful lists of names. The user captures his own name images for a better recollection.
