From Memory Techniques Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is for creating ideas for Mnemonic Images that are based on categories. Some mnemonic systems use categories to develop the images. An example would be a system where all the numbers from 50 to 59 would be animals, and the numbers 60 to 69 would be actors.

Let's try to come up with at least 100 categories -- enough to build a 10,000 image system.

Please try to keep the list in alphabetical order. The numbers for the list items are added automatically.
