I’ve been using a mind palace since my teens and never thought it odd until I saw tumblr’s reaction to Sherlock’s use of the technique. A couple days ago I found myself building an extension in order to cram for my philosophy exam the following day and I figured I’d use this as an example and get you all exploiting the genius of this method.
Because, frankly, that one on wikihow that’s been going around is a headache, and mine has bad jokes and Sherlock examples.
If anyone’s any further questions just hit up my ask and we’ll talk.
This really makes me wish I could think in images and pictures and could construct imagined spaces as mnemonic devices, instead of being restricted to dimensionless sounds and words because my brain enjoys being nebulous and difficult.
I do this when I find myself getting overwhelmed; I have a big filing room with boxes and storage at the moment, and seeing this makes me feel like I should vamp the place up.
It’s an especially good technique though if you don’t have a lot of space in reality and you’re getting a bit bogged down.
