To remember better what's being
you, try to engage all your senses whilst listening as human
brain stores pictures, feelings, smells and tastes more effectively than
words. Understand you preferred mode of thinking, your
mental map: whether you are a visual
('see' the world), auditory ('hear' the world), or a kinesthetic ('feel' the
world). If you are a visual, when you're listening to someone, first of all
make what they're are telling you into a movie.
remember better things that are out of the ordinary, you can try distorting
pictures or making them funny. "To enhance the effect, add sounds, link
feelings to your movies, put the taste and smells in. And exaggerate
everything," advises Russel Webster, the author of Super Communication −
the NLP Way.
