You've done the hard work convincing her to divulge her phone number, but in the event that your mobile's dead and there are no pen or paper, how will you memorise those digits? Don't panic, we've got you covered. But listen very carefully, for we will say this only once.
Ask her to slowly repeat her number. This gives your brain time to split the digits into smaller chunks and make connections with numbers that are in your memory.
Don’t think about the individual digits, as your mind needs more substance to help you remember in the long-term. Group them into two-, three- or four-digit chunks.
Link the digits to numbers you already know. For example, if there’s “2512” in the set of numbers, think Christmas.
Keep repeating the number back to her, but don’t do it like an idiot. Tell her you’re trying a new memory technique, as you really don’t want to forget her number. Saying things out loud when you’re memorising a speech creates a stronger memory, says Colin MacLeod, a psychologist. “This can improve memory retention by 10 to 17 per cent.”
