3 digit number


When memorizing a 3 digit number, what do you find most helpful?

breaking the number into 2 digits and then 1 digit or 1 and then 2 digits?

for example : 671

6...71= Shoe--gun
67...1= Shiva--tie

Which way seems most intuitive and which is quicker? for me 1 digit then 2 digits is very intuitive yet slower.

Help would be appreciated!

I usually do 2-1, unless using a 3-digit image.

Same as above, usually use 2-1 except for some kinds of info.

It would be an image using the three numbers
eg 671 = j ck t
Make the image for a jacket.

Like Eyelikepi mentioned you can make images with three digits. I use consonant-vowel-consonant though. It's a modified Ben System. 671 would be "bet".

ok...say you have a 8 digit number and you are using PAO...how do you account for the final two digits?

14 20 21 23 : Thor/eiNStein/Tesla/Michal Jordan ( for example )

thor / using chalk to write on a/ Tesla coil : 14/20/21.....now what do i do with 23? ...is it just michael jordan sitting there doing nothing? or dunking a basket ball as he will usually do? I am not clear what to do if i am left with 2 or 4 digits after the 6 digits?
Does this make sense?

I have tried two methods of which the second one is my favorite now that I moved to a 3-digit system

1) just the person doing him/her own action with his/her own object. It is easy to apply, but the downside to this are numbers like 232323.

2) image for no-number. I have a person, action and object meaning nothing. That way 23, 2323 and 232323 all have different images.

The second is my favorite due to how I build by system. I have a 3-digit system with 2-digit actions. Meaning persons and objects for 000-999 and actions for 00-99. On the side I have 10 objects for 0-9 and one PAO image for no-number.

With that I can make images for everything from one digit (blank-blank-object) to nine digits (Person-Action-Double object).

I have yet to update it, which takes a lot of time. I have a few days off at the end of december so I hope to be able to do it then.

Here you can find part of it

brownmiester, You've received all solid feedback here. I just will add another angle on the subject, which is not exactly in response to your initial question, but more about number systems in general.

Some people like myself are finding that a strict Person-Action-Object system may be more time-consuming to develop and practice than an equally useful Person/Object system. I've read through a lot of forum posts about what the high-level mental athletes are using, and it seems many are just assigning objects or people to each number and then having consecutive images simply interact with each other however they see fit in the moment. I'm currently in process of making a 3-digit system for my own use, and this is the route I plan to go.

When it comes to speed I agree with slate. Having to form PAO images takes time and PO or P images go faster.

The difference is in two things: uniqueness and space.

Instead of the same image every hundred or thousand times, you only find the same image every million to billion times.

For speed numbers I dont use PAO, I use P. But I can memorize a phone number in one image which I can place on a single locus. Same with the full birthday and more stuff. That is the advantage of PAO :)
