How Psychics Abuse Your Working Memory To Rip You Off

You'd like to have psychic powers, wouldn't you?   Go on. Admit it. Life would be easier if you could read the mind of your friends and lovers. And you could be rich overnight by divining the insights of the best stock pickers alive. But the reality is that psychic powers do not exist. Or at least, there's no meaningful evidence to suggest that they do. Yet the question is, why do so many people believe in psychic powers? Why are tarot readings and crystal divinations and all kinds of claptrap so attractive to so many people. Perhaps some of the answer to these questions involves working memory. So in this episode of the Magnetic Memory Method Podcast, let's talk about how.   What is working memory?   Working memory is the system that is responsible for holding and processing new and already stored information - for a short time. Having working memory is important for reasoning, comprehension, learning and memory updating. As a term, working memory is generally used synonymously with short term memory. Yet, the two concepts are distinct and should be distinguished from one another. Whereas working memory is a theoretical framework that refers to structures and processes used for temporarily storing and manipulating information, short-term memory refers to the short-term storage of information, and does not entail the manipulation or organization of material held in memory. Given these facts about working memory, it seems clear that it plays a roll in why people believe the psychics and their readings. Here's why ...   First off, psychics overwhelm their clients with questions. By asking them to access so much about their past, it can be difficult, if not impossible to remember the questions the psychic asked. As a result, the person sitting for the psychic reading will only remember the hits and not the misses. "Hits," just to define this term, is the word used to describe any time a psychic gets something right. "Misses" refers to any time the psychic gets something wrong. As we'll see, talented psychics use language as a tool for increasing the recall of hits and obliterating our memory of the misses. Magicians know how to use this effect as well. For example, they use what is commonly called misdirection. But in reality, they use ...   Focused Attention   By using focused attention, you are not misdirected but rather directed to pay attention on the wrong things. The audience then remembers only the big moves the magician makes, and should they have spotted the small moves in which the dirty work is done, the cognitive overload of the big moves erases the memory of anything else. In fact, the most rewarding compliment a magician can hear is, "but he didn't do anything." In these cases, the big moves have been so natural or ordinary that they have no meaning for working memory to grasp onto. But "misdirection" isn't the best word for this technique. A better term would be focused attention. To "misdirect" is to draw attention away from something. But sleight of hand works best when concentration is so focused on innocent movements that it cannot pay attention to the dirty ones. Psychics use the exact same process, but in this case, instead of calling it sleight of hand, we should call it ...   Sleight Of Mouth   https://youtu.be/qKy8kCLPYR0 Psychics often hide their moves by asking questions that for most people will generate "yes" answers. Drawing from Ian Rowland's excellent The Full Facts Book of Cold Reading, here are some of those questions. Follow along and think about how many of these questions would generate a yes from you. Have you recently come across some old photographs, some in albums, some that still need to be properly arranged? Have you recently thrown out some medical supplies that had gone out of date or expired? Have you recently thrown out or donated some old books, toys or clothing?

Laugh And Cry Your Way To Memory Improvement

How To Use Your Emotions To Memorize More Instead Of Letting Them Take Over Your Life And Make A Big Fat Mess Of Everything   You're an emotional person, aren't you? Those uncontrollable feelings well up from time to time, perhaps even taking over the show. In other words, emotions replace the you that you know with someone quite different. At least, that's one way of looking at it. Emotions are different versions of ourselves. The self that becomes overwhelmed by laughter is different than the self who drowns in sorrow and misery. But then eventually you find your way back. You become you once again.   The Only Problem Is That You Don't Become You!     Strong emotional states change you, and I'll bet you remember at least a couple of times that you've been changed so strongly by an emotional state that you've had no means of going back. You're as chemically changed as toast is to bread. The question is, to what extent is this change due to memory? Has the experience of emotion changed you as such, or does it impact your memory so much that you literally remember to be a different person. Certainly, post traumatic stress disorder provides some examples of people affected by memories so strongly that constant recall of the traumatic event causes that new version of the person to hold fast. But that state does have to be renewed. Even if the person feels that the memories are coming back of their own accord, they must at some level be participating in the reconstruction. And such events don't mean that trauma has improved memory in that instant so much so that the person remembers everything in sparkling detail. Traumatic memory in no way ensures accuracy and it can also lead to the repression of memory.   The Return Of The Repressed   Repression and suppression of memory is really intense because it is essentially an attempt to obliterate memories from the mind. But as Sigmund Freud made himself famous for saying, what we repress returns, usually in the form of a monster. Post-Freud, we have some interesting research about the suppression of memory. For example, test subjects asked to repress feelings of disgust while watching a horror movie remembered far less about the story and with much less accuracy than those not asked to repress their feelings. And plane crash survivors who remain calm have been said to remember more than people overwhelmed by hysterics. I've experienced this memory effect myself following a near miss trying to land in Toronto. I was going there from New York to sit for a field exam when the plane suddenly pulled up and circled over the city. We late learned that another plane had still been on the runway ahead of us, and thank goodness the pilot pulled us out of there in time enough to avoid a fiery collision. Although I didn't go crazy in terms of screaming or crying out, my inner life went nuts, something that affected my memory for days and days after. While sitting for the exam, for the first time I felt a real disruption in accessing my Memory Palaces and mnemonics. All the more so because one person on the committee was in the warpath and doing her best to see me fail. But luckily, I had relaxation on my side and calmed myself. I reminded myself of the combined power of memory and relaxation and without suppressing or repressing the feelings of terror I remembered from the previous days's adventure in the sky, I managed to handle that remembered stress and the current stress at the same time. And this is interesting because I could have broken down into tears or hysterics in that examination room because I was so fragile. But according to some theories, memories and the emotions tied to them don't force us to act in particular ways. But these emotional memories do influence our actions. And that's good news because with the exception of hungry lions and tigers and bears (like during that examination),

The Surprising Truth About Hypnosis and Memory Improvement

How Cool Would It Be If You Could Hypnotize Your Way To A Better Memory?   Well, good luck. As you’re about to learn, there’s no scientific basis or reason to believe that hypnosis can cause memory improvement. But to look at this issue, it will be helpful to focus on one area where hypnosis has been used in the attempt to improve memory: court cases. So our question is, can hypnosis really improve the memory of witnesses? Read every word of this post if you want to learn several key ways that you can still make strides with your memory improvement goals even if hypnosis turns out to be a dud when it comes to enhanced memory.   Would You Believe That Hypnosis For Memory Improvement Goes This Far Back?   Hypnosis in the courts has a long history. If we can focus solely on America, I've read that hypnosis to improve the memories of witnesses was first rejected in 1897 by the Supreme Court of California. After that, there's a dark spot until after World War II. Given all that happened during this war, officials wanted reliable ways to enhance the recall of witnesses. But despite all kinds of testing, to this date, no meaningful evidence supports hypnosis as a reliable means of improving memory. Especially not for providing testimony in a court of law. Let's break this issue down into parts so we can get both a broad and specific perspective.   This Is The Truth About Memory And Hypnosis The TV Shows Don’t Want You To Know About   First off, hypnosis of this kind sets itself up for failure. Why? Because you can't improve something that mostly doesn't exist. Think about it. You're walking down the street and you see a crime. You weren't expecting anything would happen, but then something does happen. The memories you do form are based on information that you have learned incidentally. For example, I was riding my bike last Sunday to the Mauerpark. There's a wonderful Flea Market and I was going to look for some cool postcards to send new members of the Magnetic Memory Method Masterclass. I usually find something cool there, often old cards with interesting buildings are memorable art that helps stimulate creativity. Anyhow, I was stopped at a light when all of a sudden two guys ran into the street in front of a car. They asked a group of maybe three people, "This one?" and the group of people said yes.   Rage-Fuelled Vengeance On The Streets Of Berlin!   Then the two guys approached the doors of the car. One went to the passenger side, the other to the driver's side. I think the car was blue, but I don't quite remember. It may have had four doors. What I do remember is that the guys opened the doors and started yelling. The driver and the passenger were clearly in shock and didn't know what to do. Finally, the passenger pulled out a wallet and in a Russian accent, the guy standing in the street said, "Give it me!" He ripped the wallet out of the guy's hand and slammed the door. As the other guy slammed the driver's door, the colliding air created a puff of ash from the ashtray. After the two men got back onto the sidewalk, the light turned green and the car sped off. It might seem amazing that I remember all these details, but actually stress and memory can fuse together to help you remember more in certain circumstances.   Which Of These These Facts Prove That Hypnosis Has No Chance When It Comes To Improving Memory?   What I've done just now is to recall an event that I "learned" incidentally. As I'm telling it to you, there are oodles of things I'm not telling you because there aren't enough words in the universe to explain: * The urgent voice in the back of my head telling me to get the hell out of there. * The fact that the two guys in the car were either Turkish or Syrian. * The hot girl on the bike in front of me with people who may or may not have been her brother and father. * My thoughts following the event,

Memory Techniques For Learning A Hard Language Like Basque

How To Memorize Even The Most Difficult Words In The World Using World Class Memory Techniques Hey everybody, this is Daniel Welsch. And I’m here today as a special guest host for the Magnetic Memory Method podcast. Anthony invited me to do the podcast today about using memory techniques for Basque and it’s a great pleasure and enormous honor for me to do so, also in Spanish in a general way: https://youtu.be/g9iH-GYthKw I’ve been following Anthony’s work for about a year and I’ve been corresponding with him for nearly the same length of time and he’s been a great inspiration to me, not only in my memorizing ventures but also in my own work as a teacher and writer here in Madrid, the beautiful capital of Spain. So when he offered me the chance to do an episode of the Magnetic Memory Method podcast on memory techniques, of course I jumped at it… So first I’m going to tell you a bit about my language learning journey. And then I’m going to tell you how I became acquainted with Doctor Metivier and his work with memory techniques. And finally, I’m going to take you through one of my Memory Palaces to show you exactly how I memorized some very difficult material from a language that’s like no other language in existence. Now…  A little bit about me. Aprende Más Inglés You probably don’t know me, because most of the work I do is in Spanish. But I have my own website called Aprende Más Inglés, which you can find at aprendemasingles.com. There I teach English grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation—and now, learning memory techniques and how to be a more effective student and person in general. You might want to know a bit about me. Well, I was born in the US, specifically in Phoenix, Arizona, a city in the middle of the Sonoran Desert a couple of hours from the Mexican border. Filling In Blanks On Worksheets Has Never Been One of My Passions In school I learned Spanish but never took it too seriously. After that I ended up working in a kitchen with some guys from Mexico and found that speaking languages was a lot more fun than learning them in school. Filling in blanks on worksheets has never been one of my passions. When I was 21 I moved to Madrid, Spain, which is kind of a long story, and ended up, one way or another, teaching English. And at the same time I was learning more and more Spanish. I was doing it organically, for the most part. I had some free Spanish classes, which I barely ever went to. And the rest of the time I was walking around, talking to people, reading the newspaper, watching TV, things like that. At the same time, at work I was teaching English. And I was kind of startled by how ineffective language learning in Spain was. Of course, back in the US it wasn’t any better, but in Spain learning English is just hugely important for a lot of people. Now that Spain is in the European Union and with the massive amount of international business and tourism that goes on, almost everybody needs to learn English. It should almost be a strategic objective for all of Spain, to get the general level of English up to the level where they could compete with any country in Europe. But unfortunately, the system wasn’t very effective at actually creating bilingual Spaniards. And after a few years I started to discover why. But we’ll get back to that… Couldn't Speak, Or Even Worse, Refused To Speak While I was teaching, I had a website where I was writing about grammar and vocabulary. And in the meantime, my Spanish was getting better and better. I eventually got the highest level diploma in Spanish offered by the Instituto Cervantes, which is an international organization that teaches Spanish like the British Council teaches English. And the thing about it was that I never felt like learning Spanish was a chore or an effort. I did the minimum possible in school, and later learned working in a kitchen with some guys from Mexico. And my Spanish really took off when I moved to Madrid and discovered tha...
