Icons are the most simple versatile form of visual markers.
I use some sort of icons to encode all abstract notions.
One of Anna’s favourite exercise is remembering 20 images.
The method requires
1. Chunking of the images into groups of 3-5 icons. Group by meaning or by colour or by association
2. Creating visual markers per icon and linking markers within each chain
3. Speed element – needs to be done under 1 min
4. Many of Anna’s students remember all 20 image after 3 weeks of training.
