Mnemonic major system

Mnemonic major system
The Major System (also called the phonetic number system, phonetic mnemonic system, or Herigone's mnemonic system) is a mnemonic technique used to aid in memorizing numbers. The system works by converting numbers into consonant sounds, then into words by adding vowels. The system works on the principle that images can be remembered more easily than numbers. The system[edit] Each numeral is associated with one or more consonants. The groups of similar sounds and the rules for applying the mappings are almost always fixed, but other hooks and mappings can be used as long as the person using the system can remember them and apply them consistently. Each numeral maps to a set of similar sounds with similar mouth and tongue positions. For most people it would be easier to remember 3.1415927 (an approximation of the mathematical constant pi) as: Short term visual memory of imagined scenes allows large numbers of digits to be memorized with ease, though usually only for a short time.

Maintenance mode Using memory techniques can get complicated when you want to memorize a lot of different information. Memory godfather Tony Buzan came up with the idea of putting your major system into a matrix and stretching it that way up to 10.000 combinations. Frank Gazerro is making his debut as an author for by writing this article for you. Recomondation from A similar system to the SEM³ but more effective is the Wardrobe Method. You might be interested in our article about this little known but powerful technique. The Wardrobe Method Many of us use mind mapping as a way to organize our thoughts and plan projects. In his book, Master Your Memory, Buzan outlines his memory system, the Self Enhanced Memory Matrix or Sem Cubed (Sem³). The 10×10 Grid It all starts with a 10×10 grid. The matrix is build by 10 categories with ten elements each Each column represents a block of 1000 numbers divided evenly between 10 cells. Get the idea? Themes and Pegs Take the number 5025.

The Major System Peg Words One of the really poweful uses of the Major System is as a sort of memory pegboard. As part of your Major System, you create a list of 100 peg words that can then be used as memory hooks to 'hang' anything on. As with virtually all memory work, it works by association. In other words, once you're familiar with your peg words (really familiar, that is!) Oh, and did I mention that the hooks are all numbered? Since you're going to create little mental images (or mental videos) of these things, that's what they should be ... things! I'm giving you a list of 100 memory peg words that conform to the 100 numbers from zero to ninety-nine, but you don't have to use them. How to create good peg words In case you haven't grasped it yet, each peg word is made up of two consonant sounds. You can find countless suggestions for peg words on a really useful site called Pinfruit. head, and playing a lute or some such instrument. Once you settle on the words for your list, write them down and study them.

Remembering Numbers - The Phonetic Number System to Easily Memorize Numbers Remembering numbers is hard. But if you want to build a great memory, you need a way to memorize them. Fortunately, there is a memory trick you can use for long numbers. It's called the Phonetic Number system (or Major system). It was developed over 300 years ago and is one of the most powerful of the memory systems that use imagination and association. Why is remembering numbers important? If the presentation includes sales figures and statistics, would you rather shuffle through papers or amaze everyone by spitting out the numbers from memory? That's just one example, but if you need to remember passwords, phone extensions, mathematical constants, street addresses, product codes, Bible verses, or anything else numeric, then invest some time learning the Phonetic Number system. Phonetic Number System The Phonetic Number system is a substitute alphabet for changing numbers to letters. Now try memorizing the 30-digit number "8567 13543 887 54365 23678 369".

¿Qué es Mindfulness? | Sociedad Mindfulness y Salud - Argentina ¿Qué es Mindfulness? La palabra "Mindfulness" ha sido traducida al español como Atención Plena o Presencia Mental. Utilizaremos Atención Plena para referirnos a ella. Durante los últimos 30 años, la práctica de Mindfulness o Atención Plena está integrándose a la Medicina y Psicología de Occidente. Es aplicada, estudiada científícamente y por ello reconocida como una manera efectiva de reducir el estrés, aumentar la autoconciencia, reducir los síntomas físcos y psicológicos asociados al estrés y mejora el bienestar general. Aunque la práctica de Mindfuless ha sido recientemente integrada a la Medicina y Psicología de Occidente, se trata de una práctica muy antigua que se origina hace más de 2500 años y constituye la esencia fundamental de las prácticas Budistas.

Remember Any Number With the Major Memory System Did you ever want to be able to recite pi up to 22,500 decimal digits? As for me, I never felt attracted to that sort of stuff. But remembering phone numbers, passwords, PINs, birthdays and all sorts of everyday numbers — that’s something I resonate with! Meet the Major memory system, one of the most powerful techniques around for memorizing numbers. How the Major Memory System Works Our brains are notoriously poor at memorizing numbers. And that’s what the Major system is about: converting abstract, dull numbers into vivid, striking images. The Major Memory System in 3 Steps 1. The heart of the Major system — and the key to convert numbers to images and vice-versa — is a 10-item mnemonic table. As an example, let’s take the (in)famous number 42. According to the mnemonic table, the digits in the number 42 translate to r and n respectively. 42 gets encoded as rain, then. Decoding from word to number is even more straightforward. There are just a couple more notes to bear in mind: 2. 3. 0.

¿Qué es la resiliencia? Por Ana Muñoz Updated September 01, 2016. La resiliencia es la capacidad para afrontar la adversidad y lograr adaptarse bien ante las tragedias, los traumas, las amenazas o el estrés severo. Ser resiliente no significa no sentir malestar, dolor emocional o dificultad ante las adversidades. La muerte de un ser querido, una enfermedad grave, la pérdida del trabajo, problemas financiero serios, etc., son sucesos que tienen un gran impacto en las personas, produciendo una sensación de inseguridad, incertidumbre y dolor emocional. El camino que lleva a la resiliencia no es un camino fácil, sino que implica un considerable estrés y malestar emocional, a pesar del cual las personas sacan la fuerza que les permite seguir con sus vidas frente la adversidad o la tragedia. La resiliencia no es algo que una persona tenga o no tenga, sino que implica una serie de conductas y formas de pensar que cualquier persona puede aprender y desarrollar. continue reading below our video

Sleep medicine Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances and disorders. From the middle of the 20th century, research has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning.[1] The rapidly evolving field[2] has become a recognized medical subspecialty in some countries. Dental sleep medicine also qualifies for board certification in some countries. Properly organized, minimum 12-month, postgraduate training programs are still being defined in the United States.[3][4] In some countries, the sleep researchers and the physicians who treat patients may be the same people. The first sleep clinics in the United States were established in the 1970s by interested physicians and technicians; the study, diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea were their first tasks. Scope and classification[edit] History[edit] The concept of sleep medicine belongs to the second half of the 20th century. Asia[edit]

Psicoterapia con casos "imposibles" (Duncan, Hubble y Miller) En la entrada de hoy, vamos a resumir un libro de psicoterapia que nos ha impresionado recientemente, dentro de la orientación de la llamada terapia centrada en soluciones. Se trata del texto Psicoterapia con casos "imposibles" de Duncan, Hubble y Miller, que nos ha parecido del mayor interés. A continuación, nuestro resumen de dicha obra: Cambiar las reglas de la imposibilidad Con más frecuencia de lo que quisiéramos nos encontramos con individuos instalados en nuestra compasión, atrapados en sus quejas e inmunes a los procedimientos y técnicas más sofisticadas de nuestra profesión. Esta mezcla de compasión, exasperación ante el fracaso del tratamiento y responsabilidad profesional puede a veces agotarnos y hacernos llegar a conclusiones de que el paciente es “imposible”. Históricamente la imposibilidad ha sido siempre atribuida al cliente. Así, el camino hacia el caso imposible se abre a partir de la misma expectativa de la imposibilidad. “Toda persona es un individuo.

Brain fitness The term brain fitness reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain, in analogy to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body. Although there is strong evidence that aspects of brain structure remain plastic throughout life, and that high levels of mental activity are associated with reduced risks of age-related dementia, scientific support for the concept of "brain fitness" is limited. The term is virtually never used in the scientific literature, but is commonly used in the context of self-help books and commercial products.[1] It first came into play in the 1980s, and appeared in the titles of self-help books in 1989[2] and 1990.[3] §Overview[edit] Brain fitness can be measured physically at the cellular level by neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons, and increased functional connections of synapses and dendrites between neurons. §Neurogenesis[edit] Main article: Neurogenesis §Mental stimulation[edit]

Jay Haley Jay Haley Jay Douglas Haley (July 19, 1923 – February 13, 2007)[1] was one of the founding figures of brief and family therapy in general and of the strategic model of psychotherapy, and he was one of the more accomplished teachers, clinical supervisors, and authors in these disciplines.[2][3] Life and works[edit] Haley was born at his family's homestead in Midwest, Wyoming. While at Stanford, Haley met the anthropologist Gregory Bateson who invited him to join a communications research project that later became known as The Bateson Project, a collaboration that became one of the driving factors in the creation of family therapy and that published the single most important paper in the history of family therapy,[5] "Towards a Theory of Schizophrenia In addition to his personal involvement in the birth and evolution of family therapy, Jay was an observational researcher of psychotherapy in the 1950s and early 1960s.

Smoking cessation Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking. Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive,[1] making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult. Smoking cessation can be achieved with or without assistance from healthcare professionals, or the use of medications. In a growing number of countries, there are more ex-smokers than smokers.[2]Early "failure" is a normal part of trying to stop, and more than one attempt at stopping smoking prior to longer-term success is common.[2]NRT, other prescribed pharmaceuticals, and professional counselling or support also help many smokers.[2]However, up to three-quarters of ex-smokers report having quit without assistance ("cold turkey" or cut down then quit), and cessation without professional support or medication may be the most common method used by ex-smokers.[2] Tobacco contains nicotine. Methods[edit] Major reviews of the scientific literature on smoking cessation include:
