Memory TrainingImprove your memory with some simple but effective memory training puzzles. There are many ways of working on developing your memory. Although many believe that you either have a good or a bad memory, it is actually one element that you develop the most. Just look at world memory champions - many of them state to have had an average memory at best at school, until they learnt many techniques to store lots of information. The more developed and elaborate the technique the more information can be stored and recalled, however it requires years of training to get to really high levels.
The good news is that with a couple of simple techniques you can very quickly learn lists of objects and other straightforward data that hitherto you might have found very hard to remember past around the tenth item in the list. There are lots of memory related tips in the articles section.
Here we don't look at techniques, but simply practicing storing a basic visual pattern and then recalling it. By practising remembering information of various types you can exercise your ability to remember and to recall information at speed.
If you find remembering patterns or spatial information difficult, then you may wish to start with our Alphabet Memory Game instead. These memory pattern puzzles test your ability to learn and remember a pattern at speed and the relation of filled cells to empty cells.
Study the pattern below for ten seconds. After that time, Hide the Puzzle and then give yourself a minute to draw the pattern as accurately as you can on a piece of paper. Once the time is up, Reveal the puzzle and see how well you did.
If you find this puzzle tough the first time you do it, don't worry - most people do. However with practice your ability to recognise and remember the pattern of filled cells will improve and you will find it a lot easier to accurately reproduce the pattern with practice.
