Unconscious Semantic Memorization
Happens to me every once and a while, I go trough an item, get an error (4 or 5 on SM), this item shoud be reviewed and learned in the drill phase, but can’t ever make it. Dr. Wosniak (SM creator) says the drill is not obligatory at all, and just making the repetitions should suffice, but leeches come repetitively and I find my self hopeless. Will this nugett of information ever get into my hippocampus?
This situation can get very obnoxious. Then, suddenly, It sticks to my memory. I not talking of course of using mnemonics, or other related memory tecnnique, I ‘m just talking pure wrote memory, but in this case “unvoluntary wrote memory”. Neuroscience research has found that even those who have anmesia (with the semantic memory affected) can recall information with out councious effort (they can’t recall when they learned the information in the first place).
Botton line, just go trough the repetitions, if you can find any suitable mnemonic technique to help you out with those leeches, maybe in the interim something comes up to your help, and stop worring about how to learn it, if information is repeated it will get into your memory, voluntary or with out any concious intervention.
I currently working out my note taking and knowledge management procedures, and algorithms, until progress in this issue is done references to the ideas expressed in this blog will be delayed. For now, please forgieve my forgetfulness.
