Well, Professor Richard Harris from Kansas University, said the condition is very plural. Not because of impaired memory, but simply because you do not assume the person is important.
“Remembering or not is a problem or personal interest,” he said, as quoted by Shine. “If we feel that we will not meet again, or we feel we do not need the person in the future, and does not attract attention, the potential to forget names is quite large.”
Still, Harris said that strategy is needed to remember all the names of people we meet. Being able remember people’s names is useful to foster good relationships in the future. “The easiest way is to start the habit of repeating the name after the acquaintance.”
To fight the ‘disease’, you can follow the following two powerful tricks:
• Relate to popular names
Can associate their name with the name of the artist, friend, or family members who are similar. For example, if her name is Robert, immediately imagine Robert Pattinson’s figure. It is guaranteed that you will not forget his name.
• Associate names with pictures
If you meet with a client named Rose, maybe you could imagine her as a real rose flower.
