54 disorderly-ordered cards can be recorded in seconds;1987 disorderly numbers can be successfully memorized in just one hour. For the post-95 girl Kong Jinlan, memory can travel at an incredible speed.
\"It's the best arrangement. It's the best arrangement. The senior, who has the title of \"Master of the World's Memory \", is sharing his mind in the face of the upcoming World Brain Championships.
On November 15,2019, the 28th World Brainpower Championship was held in Optical Valley, Wuhan, where memory gurus from around the world gathered to compete for the highest honor in the world's memory field. Kong Jinlan,22, looked at the students who struggled in the training room as if they had seen themselves.
During the summer vacation of 2017, she wanted to use her vacation as a part-timer, and happened to see the announcement of the short-term teaching assistant of the school group brain memory association on the campus of Hubei University. Memory can still be trained? She took a great interest in it, then pushed off her part-time job and signed up to be an assistant.
The teacher at the training camp gave the assistants a memory task of 40 digital combinations, and Kong Jinlan spent hours memorizing it, thinking it was quick to memorize it. But she was surprised and unwilling to see someone else finish their memory in just two minutes. I think I can do it, too.
She began to consult her training camp teacher for mental memory, which maximizes her memory by transforming abstract numbers and blocks into stories or images of images through images, associations, homophones, etc.
\"Every time I practice I'm immersed in it, like I've met an old friend I haven't seen for years. She decided to give up her temporary part-time assistantship and concentrate on memory training.
In July 2017, Kong's \"10,000 hours \"memory master road began. The daily training process is full of hardships: memory for nine hours a day, from morning to night.
Three days before practice, the coach gave the trainees 100 digital codes to memorize. At first, Kong Jinlan could not find the \"feeling\" of the mind method, and many of the coding of the memory were wrong. She suffered a blow,\" at the time under high pressure, the head was bloated, the face was also hot, feel very suffering.\"
She didn't accept defeat in order to master the training skills, to find a senior to watch the teaching video carefully. The video divides the methods of memory into two categories:\" active \"and\" passive \". The method of \"active\" refers to the associative memory according to the material attribute, through the personification and so on; the method of \"passive\" refers to finding a force point and carrying the image for memory. \"After watching the video, I had a sudden feeling. The next day, Kong Jinlan repeatedly practiced the new acquisition of memory methods, only a day, the smooth mastery of the training know-how.
\"A key point in remembering numbers is to build your own memory palace.\" \"It's actually the equivalent of a real-life room, and memory is the combination of numbers into a room marker,\" Kong said. Taking the four numbers of \"1\"0\"0\"0\"6\" as an example, the two groups, according to the pictograph method, can be imagined as baseball; according to the homophonic transformation method, the two numbers of \"1\"0\"6\" can be associated with the image of pomegranate.
In order to accumulate sufficient markers for their own memory palace, during the summer vacation, Kong Jinlan ran all over Wuhan three towns of universities, shooting nearly 1800 markers.
In the meantime, she has detailed plans for remembering 1000 numbers a day and two rounds of five-minute self-tests. Most of the time, I can't even eat a meal without a plan.
Abstract Graphics Project is one of the 10 projects in the World Brainpower Championship, which mainly examines the ability of people to remember abstract graphics, and contestants can transform it into digital memory by observing the texture and details of the figure and digitally encoding according to these characteristics of the figure. \"The project is a test of image thinking, and at first it was hard for me to master it.
At that time, Kong Jinlan like \"possessed \",\" the morning back cannot finish the afternoon back, the afternoon back cannot finish the evening back, even when eating, are in the back of the number again and again.
Step by step, step by step. By the end of the 21-day summer session, she had been able to correctly remember 240 irregular figures in one minute, meeting the \"quasi-master\" standard in the field of mental memory.
In a twinkling of an eye, in October 2017, preparations for the World Championships became the main theme of Kong Jinlan's life. The closer she got to the race, the more she demanded of herself. She runs every day on the 3.1 line: dormitory, canteen, training room. She spends more time in the training room than in bed. At each training session, the room was quiet and \"dropped a needle on the ground that could be heard \".
In wuhan in november, the night was bitterly cold. Every night at 10:30, Kong Jinlan will finish training. On her way back to her dorm, she still carried the numbers, reflected on the day's training and planned for the next day's training. Every time she's the last one in the training room.
The high intensity of the training made her brain very tired, just go back to the bedroom with a pillow and fall asleep. She remembers, at the height of training, remembering numbers in dreams.
In December 2017, Kong Jinlan broke the project's Chinese record with 30 minutes of memorizing 1287 figures, winning the lifetime honorary title of \"Master of World Memory.\" Of the same group of trainers, she was the only one who ended up with the honor.
Looking back on this experience, Kong Jinlan felt very surprised. Two years ago, she was a timid girl standing in front of the crowd. She was happy to be able to meet something she liked in college and stick to it all the way.
\"Next, I want to broaden the scope of learning in the practical aspects of fast reading, mind maps, and so on, and broaden the depth of learning in the frontiers of memory. 'Memories never stop,' Mr. Kong said.
