Try This Simple Technique to Always Remember the Names of People You Meet!

Watch the video to find out:

  • How much of your mind’s capabilities are determined by genetics … and how much is in your control. (Hint: It’s more than you think!)
  • Which former U.S. president has a famously fantastic memory — and Kwik’s theory on why that is
  • Kwik’s M.O.M. and S.U.A.V.E. memory techniques to help you become a name-memorizing wizard in record time

Ready for your challenge for this week?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Use Kwik’s “S.U.A.V.E.” technique this week to remember the names of new people you meet. Try to learn at least two new names a day.

  • S(ay): Say the person’s name out loud.
  • U(se): Use her name in a sentence, e.g. “Natalie, it’s nice to meet you!” Use the name three to four times in conversation, but don’t “abuse” it.
  • A(sk): Ask the person whose name you’re learning a question. The meaning of her name, or where she’s from, are great starting points.
  • V(isualize): Try visualizing something tied to the person’s name. For example, if he’s named Matt, picture a doormat after learning his name.
  • E(nd): As you walk away from the conversation, use the person’s name one last time to say goodbye.

Don’t have a networking event or conference coming up? No problem. Consider finding a meetup happening locally, or test the S.U.A.V.E. technique out at the coffee shop to remember the name of your barista, or the next time you’re out with a friend, strike up a conversation with a stranger to practice being S.U.A.V.E.
