  1. You could also remember blossom by thinking BLAH, I have to memorize SOME thing

  2. I hate when people tell me to use imagery when I dont have a minds eye.

    Someones always like "okay okay imagine this" and I'm like "I literally cant I dont have a minds eye".

  3. The big question I have is how do you determine what images to use. Or How quickly do you have to determine what imagery you are going to associate with the information you are taking in.

  4. Hello there, I want to know if Rotogenflux Methods, will work for me? I see lots of people keep on talking about this iq course.

  5. I associate the word 'blossom' with Myaim Bialick.

  6. What do you think of increase your IQ of 20 points with Rotogenflux Methods? I see a lot of people keep on talking about Rotogenflux Methods.

  7. Another tecnique to improve the memory is : every night when youre going to sleep , you try to remember all of the things that you did through the day , ps : the most important thing about this tecnique is try to remember the minimal details . whether you believe it or not , it did help me improve A LOT my memory efficiency.
