so it turns out I have problems memorizing really abstract concepts like biases or physics concepts. What I currently do is develop a construct to represent the idea and then have them do an action or two to distinguish between the types. So if its recall bias, I might imagine the a bee to represent bias with its brain organized like a furniture store, with the bee having a hard time finding a specific piece of furniture. Obviously some defects in that example, but thats the best i can do at the moment. Maybe other peeps have better suggestions.

That might work, but what I normally do when memorizing abstract concepts is to simply turn them into completely different images that will remind me of the concept. Perhaps the bee would call a friend on a mobile phone and I would have call remind me of recall. Ofcourse, one must find a balance since to far-fetched associations will make you remember the image, but be unable to understand what it meant.
