New Member: Max Caesar, 35y, Brazil

Hello guys!

I'm a engineer from Brazil and I'm interested in memory techniques about a year or so.
I love to study and learn new subjects. Currently I'm using spaced repetition (Anki) to retain most of information I need, but after watching a TEDtalk from Joshua Foer I got more interested in other techniques like memory palace.

My main goal is to learn how to memorize and recollect effectively huge amounts of information that I could use in my profession, learning a new language and passing difficult exams.

I decide to become a member of the forum to exchange experiences and to learn new techniques.

Nice to meet you all! Thank's for having me.

Welcome, Max.

It would be helpful to know what kind of Engineer. In my experience, some are diagram oriented, others detail oriented ie knowing the sizes of various widgets. Electrical engineers have a different emphasis to Civils for instance.

Hi Brianma,

Thank you for your reply. I'm a agronomist engineer and you're right. I love to structure information in diagrams and mind maps. I think most engineers like to measure things, record and analyze information in tables and graphics. I'm a heavy user of anki, but I'm very impressed with this visual and imaginative techniques. I'm starting a memory palace in Minecraft too. :-)
