Memorized my first deck of cards!


I got my first deck! A few days ago I memorized 32 cards in about 3 minutes. Last night I tried the whole deck and got it in 3:56 with no mistakes.

The recall time was took about 9:40. I really had only 2/3 of the images solid in my mind. The rest I had to build up with a lot of thought, or through scanning the remaining cards and going "where does this one go?". On top of that, I would think 2C, and accidently pick up 2S, and so I spent a lot of time going back through my re-organized deck. Overall I'm quite proud, and I'm excited to make some milestones! I'll probably post in this thread often, so stay tuned!

I re-arranged a separate deck of cards. That deck I had pre-organized by suits, going from A-K

Great job! It amazed me the first time I was able to do it. These techniques really do work wonders.

Nice job! The recall takes a bit to get use to but once you train a good bit, you will know for sure if you know missing cards or not!

3:56...geez that's really fast IMO, especially for the first time. It takes me about 10 minutes.

Non-cards update: Got 96 digits in 5 minutes. Recalled it perfectly in just over 8 minutes. Trying to train every day for my province's memory competition in June!
