  • - What's up, everyone, Nelson Dellis here

  • for another episode of Random Memory Tips,

  • and in this video, I'm gonna teach you

  • how to memorize any lines of text,

  • any lines of poetry really quick.

  • It's a really simple,

  • and I don't even know how it works,

  • technique for memory and memorizing those kinds of things.

  • You gotta see this, let's go.

  • (energetic rhythmic music)

  • So, I learned this technique watching another YouTube video.

  • It's not something that I came up with

  • or had ever heard about until I watched

  • Lauren Tothero's video on this.

  • I don't know where she got it from either

  • or if she came up with it, but I tried it

  • and it involves like zero memory techniques.

  • It's just kind of doing this process

  • that your brain somehow gobbles up this information

  • and it is able to spew it back out.

  • It's insane. - Wait.

  • - I will say that if you do this,

  • yes, you'll get the lines in your heads really fast,

  • but you then have to maybe apply a memory palace technique

  • to help kind of solidify it there

  • for longer periods of time.

  • But if you're on set, if you're about to deliver something

  • and you need to get those lines right in your head,

  • this technique is almost fool-proof.

  • I have a goal in mind, but I think to start

  • we could do something very simple

  • like this random line from a random poem called Sasquatch.

  • The Sasquatch squats, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump by the riverbed.

  • THat's the first two lines.

  • You read over that line, or lines, a couple times

  • to kinda get the gist of it in your head.

  • Okay, so the Sasquatch squats, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump by the riverbed.

  • Sasquatch squats, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump by the riverbed.

  • Then what you do is,

  • and do it with a pen on a piece of paper

  • just so you get that visual memory,

  • is write down the first letter of each word.

  • So, the is just the T,

  • S for Sasquatch, and include punctutation

  • and capitals if they have capital letters.

  • Squats comma flowers in hand comma

  • on an old stump

  • by the riverbed period.

  • This is what I have.

  • Doesn't look like much,

  • but then what you try to do is try to read this, right?

  • Try to read what it actually is

  • just using the first letter of each word.

  • And so it may seem a bit impossible,

  • but if you think about it and you remember a little bit

  • the visual things that you saw when you first read it,

  • you can kinda put it together.

  • And if you can't get it, you can always kind of look back,

  • but you should be able to get this pretty quick.

  • So, the Sasquatch squats, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump

  • by the riverbank.

  • I think.

  • Bed.

  • So, then what you do is once you kinda have that,

  • read this over a couple times in your head.

  • The Sasquatch squats, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump by the riverbed.

  • The Sasquatch squats, flower in hand, flowers in hand,

  • on an old stump by the riverbed.

  • That's it.

  • Now, that's not that impressive

  • just because that's just two lines,

  • so let's try it maybe with something

  • a little more complicated like--

  • - Nick, I want to explain.

  • - What's there to explain?

  • - But I just want to say that--

  • - Look, I'm not the first guy who fell in love

  • with a girl he met in a restaurant

  • who then turned out to be

  • the daughter of a kidnapped scientist,

  • only to lose her to a childhood lover

  • who she'd last seen on a deserted island

  • and who turned out, 15 years later,

  • to be the leader of the French Underground.

  • - I know it.

  • It all sounds like some bad movie.

  • - Just to reiterate what the quote is exactly,

  • I'm not the first guy who fell in love

  • with woman that he met at a restaurant

  • who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientists,

  • only to lose her to her childhood lover

  • who she last saw on a deserted island

  • who then turned out, 15 years later,

  • to be the leader of the French Underground.

  • Yeah.

  • - Well, it's a little confusing.

  • - Maybe I'll read it one more time.

  • First guy who fell in love with a woman

  • that he met at a restaurant

  • who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist,

  • only to lose her to her childhood lover

  • who she last saw on a deserted island

  • who then turned out, 15 years later,

  • to be the leader of the French Underground.

  • Now, this next step is to write down all those letters,

  • just the first letters,

  • and I think it helps if you write it

  • in the same format that you're reading it.

  • So if something skips the next line,

  • you should write it out that way.

  • That way you have the visual memory of it when you read it,

  • the visual memory when you write it down,

  • and then then you try to actually remember it

  • with all those pieces together,

  • you actually have kind of

  • an amazing blueprint of it in your head.

  • Here it is.

  • Yeah, that's a lot of letters, right?

  • So, let's try to read it.

  • Let me see if I can read it.

  • I have it here in case I need to look over.

  • The first few times, just try to get through it.

  • I'm not the first guy who fell in love

  • with a woman that he met at a restaurant who then turned out

  • to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist,

  • only to lose her to her childhood lover

  • who she last saw on a deserted island

  • who then turned out, 15 years later,

  • to be the leader of the French Underground.

  • Alright, let's try this. (dramatic chord)

  • I'm not the first guy who fell in love

  • with a woman who he met at a restaurant

  • who then turned out to be

  • the daughter of a kidnapped scientist,

  • only to lose her to her childhood lover

  • who she last seen on a deserted island

  • who then turned out, 15 years later,

  • to be the leader of the French Underground.

  • Boom. - Yes.

  • - Alright, thank you guys.

  • That was a short one.

  • Pretty easy, not much memory to it,

  • but I hope it helps you.

  • A lot of people ask me how do I remember

  • specific texts really quickly,

  • and most of the time I tell them

  • just to use a memory palace, but that takes a process.

  • It takes up some time,

  • so this is actually a really quick method

  • and I think it's fun.

  • It's kinda weird how it just gets absorbed

  • and anyone can do it,

  • so go ahead and try that, and I hope it helps you guys.

  • I'll see you in the next video.

  • Make sure to like, subscribe, all the things.

  • I'll see you very shortly.

  • Thanks, guys, peace.
