The Secret : The secret behind memorizing 18 randomly selected objects in one minute is by using  Journey Method. The Journey method is one of the most powerful and oldest method of memorizing random words. This method is 500 years old method, which was used by ancient people in order to memorize shopping list in a sequence.

In this system of memory, we have to create the permanent location in our memory. Like, my permanent locations are:

  • My House
  • Stairs
  • Furniture Shop
  • School
  • PCO Booth
  • Bank
  • Sweet Shop
  • Saloon
  • Hotel
  • Internet cafe

Now, suppose that I have to memorize a list of 10 randomly objects, the objects may be like that:

  • Tomatoes
  • Shoes
  • Goggle
  • Chocolates
  • Flowers
  • Balloon
  • Tea Set
  • Travelling Bag
  • Cap
  • Mosquito Net

Now, create a powerful association between these two lists.

Permanent List Temporary List
My House Tomatoes
Stairs Shoes
Furniture Shop Goggle
School Chocolates
PCO Booth Flowers
Bank Balloon
Sweet Shop Tea Set
Saloon Travelling Bag
Hotel Cap
Internet cafe Mosquito Net
  • My house is filled with a large number of tomatoes.
  • Black color shoes are lying on the stairs.
  • The owner of a furniture shop is wearing a big white color goggle.
  • All children studying in the school are eating chocolates.
  • Inside a PCO booth, a big flower is placed instead a telephone.
  • You are going to open a bank account at a bank near your house, and all the people inside the bank welcoming you with a pink balloon.
  • You are drinking tea in a very beautiful tea set at a sweet shop.
  • This Saloon has no chair that’s are why all the people getting their hair cut done while sitting on a big traveling bag.
  • All the hotel staff members are wearing a big red colour cap.
  • You are searching for different kinds of mosquito net available on internet market .

Now, after making the powerful association, try to recall the objects associated with these locations.

  • My House
  • Stairs
  • Furniture Shop
  • School
  • PCO Booth
  • Bank
  • Sweet Shop
  • Saloon
  • Hotel
  • Internet cafe

I am damn sure that you will be able to recall the objects / items linked with each location.

Like this, I have memorized 18 randomly selected objects by associating those 18 fixed locations. And, this is the secret behind memorizing 18 random objects in one minute.
