How to Increase Short-Term Memory Capacity?

Ask a Question

Dyslexia affects my short time memory, for example, if an app is asking to put a code which they had messaged I can't remember these 4 or 6 digits.

Something happens with my short-term tasks, for example, if I see a deal and I like to get it and leave a kind comment for the person who shared it. I can't do both tasks either I will forget to check the deal or leaving the comment.

Do you have this issue too, if yes what do you do to remember things? Please don't recommend writing notes for me, as you know people with dyslexia are not very good in writing and putting notes.

Screen shot things to help.

I find routine helps to if I do things in same way I'm more likely to remember it all theoretically anyway

Imnotcheap I do take lots of screenshot, now, modern phones are making lite much easier. I have about 20 alarms in my phone and too many reminders.

You could try doing brain exercises, there are plenty of free apps available now. Not sure if they will help in ur situation but could be worth a try? Or make lists of things when u think of them to refer back to later

If you can't remember four or six digit codes it's best not to try to remember them as a sequence of numbers but as groups of two numbers,

You would remember:

4362 as forty three, sixty two.

872982 as eighty seven, twenty nine, eighty two.

Saying them aloud as you transfer them to short term memory helps.

You might find six digit sequences of numbers are easier remembered as two groups of three.

I have to admit that I find it easier to remember them in groups of 2 numbers and even link them to word problems ...our landline number fits well with family birthdays eg 712945 could be 7th Dec, and September '45 so I can rattle it off easily.
