Here’s Something Interesting: You Only Remember 7 Things at Best

I haven’t done one of these kinds of posts in a long time. When it comes to our memory, there are so many things that we can store and remember for later times. Our short-term memory, on the one hand, we can best remember 7 things at one time.

Everyone’s short-term memory is different. Some say the magical number is 7 things plus or minus 2 things. On good days, people can remember more and on off days, they remember less.

People can train their minds to chunk information together, which allows us to remember more things in our short-term memory. Studies have found that it’s easier for us to remember numbers than letters.

Our short-term memory seems to be between 15 to 30 seconds. If we vocalize what we want to remember, it helps to keep things in our short-term memory. Overall some people can remember a handful of things at once and some can only remember a small amount and that’s ok. Your not alone if you relate to any of the information presented here. Remember, everyone is different therefore everyone’s mind is wired differently.
